Attic Supply Air

Recommended Posts

The pictures below are taken in a garage.The first picture shows the gas furnace and gas water heater.The second shows a register in the ceiling to supplement the supply air.The third is the attic view of the register.

This is the second time I have seen this setup.The first was a few weeks ago during a framing inspection.I thought someone had gotten over zealous.This house is less than 2 years old and is in the same AHJ area as the first home I saw.Have any of the other Florida people seen this arrangement?

Thanks

There is no firewall between the garage and house in this area.The garage walls/ceilings are not fire rated .They could be considered a firestop if anything.When I saw this it did not look right.I would think if they wanted more supply air for this area the vent would go thru the roof.That way there would not be a direct access to the attic from the garage.
