Installing natural gas appliances in garages comes with various code restrictions that must be followed to insure safety.
For example, unless an appliance is listed as flammable vapor ignition resistant, it must be installed so that the source of ignition is at least eighteen inches (18″) above the level of the garage floor. This reduces the risk of gasoline or other flammable vapors from being ignited by the main burner or pilot flame.
