**"portlandmom"-* to the forum. Thanks in advance for any help.
I've recently heard that sleeping in a room with an AC and/or WH can be a safety hazard/risk and my one year old son is currently doing just that. -/ I'm a renter paying quite a bit for a large home and am looking for some sort of feel for how serious the problem is, since any "solution" to it would be quite extreme (trying to get out of lease and move, having our son's "room" in one place and his crib for sleeping elsewhere, etc).
I do think the landlord is good - home seems well maintained, this is more me wanting to be as safe as possibly with my very small child. Along those same lines, if I'm asking a stupid question/worrying too much I'm sorry for wasting your time -- I just don't know who else to ask (ahh, isn't the Internet great?).
Trying to upload the pictures to a website to link to...
I've looked up the codes etc but I can't understand them since I'm not well versed in HVAC terms. It does look like there is some sort of weather proofing around the door which is a requirement I understand for having a system installed in a bedroom. There does seem to be an intake coming from above (attic? outside the home?) next to the water heater.
Anything you can tell me about how to resolve the issue/feel comfortable about it is welcomed. More than willing to have an expert come take a look - don't know who to call, really, as I have never been a home owner and dealt with these issues.
Thanks in advance!*/-*
