Oct 12 2010 · I know IBC Table 508.2.5 says a furnace room where any piece of equipment is over 400000 BTU/hr input requires a 1-hr separation or automatic fire suppression. But I thought somewhere in either the 2003 or 2006 codes it specifically stated when a furnace or boiler room is required. Thanks.
The chapters of the International Residential Code (IRC) that are likely relevant to the installation of a gas-fired boiler include Chapter 13 General Mechanical System Requirements; Chapter 14 Heating and Cooling Equipment; Chapter 20 Boilers and Water Heaters; Chapter 21

a Thermal efficiency (E t) is based on Hydronics Institute Method to Determine Efficiency of Commercial Space Heating Boilers (HI BTS-2000 Rev. 06.07). b Boilers with input greater than 10000000 Btu/h are not covered by federal purchasing requirements. Minimum efficiency presented is consistent with ASRHAE 90.1-2016 Table 6.8.1-6
