Can you install a gas dryer in garage California Code?
Similarly, it is asked, is it safe to have a gas dryer in the garage?
EXPLOSION HAZARD Do not install the dryer where gasoline or other flammables are kept or stored. If the dryer is installed in a garage, it must be a minimum of 18 inches (45.7 cm) above the floor.
People also ask, does a gas dryer need to be elevated?
Gas dryers need to be 18" off garage floors now. It's actually an old code never really applied, but they hammer everyone on water heaters, now gas clothes dryers must be elevated. National Fuel Gas does state "any source" of ignition, just never had it applied to this.
Height enhancers Many front-loaders we test are excellent at cleaning, but the design isn't that convenient and requires lots of bending. That's why for $500 to $600 you can buy pedestals for the washer and its matching dryer. They raise the machines from 11 to 15 inches.
