yes – I am sure it does happen . . . .but how would that carbon monoxide gas
enter the house through an A/C duct in the garage if it is pressurized ??
I just made a pencil sketch for Gramps for his review of what I am going to do to my garage.
the key is to have the A/C supply terminate in a wood box with a door similar to
a small cabinet sealed with foam insulation tape and LOCKED with a PADLOCK while you
are not in the garage.
if anyone would like to see the sketch, PM me with your email and I will send it to you.
I will not post it here because of possible negative ramifications.
Edit: I just called my Building Code Officer and he said there is not a Florida Code that
prohibits the additional duct to cool a residential garage space.
so the statement of: “Totally against code in all 50 states” is not a correct statement !!!!.
if you do want to run A/C duct into your garage, contact your local Building Code Officer
for accurate information…... do not rely on a website forum to tell you what is correct
and not correct in your neck of the woods. (YMMV).
