First off I'm in California and opening a home day care. I did an addition onto my home for the day care room. What are the requirements as far as ac and heating? I was going to run the central ac and heat into the room but I'm also thinking about just putting a portable heater in there instead and once it's summer putting a portable ac. I've looked in the regulations and can't find anything on requirements when it comes to this. Does anyone know what will pass and what won't? Any suggestions on what to do?

Personally, I wouldn’t have an appliance that a child get burned from unless it has a barrier or screen around it for protection.

(2) Gas heaters shall be properly vented and permanently installed.

As early as the first stage of construction, the installation of supply and exhaust natural ventilation is envisaged when designing the building. It allows for pass-through, angular, and one-way ventilation.
