Water Heater location question

Are there any laws/ regulations as to how far away from anything (furnace) that a hot water heater has to be in Michigan? If I could move mine over like 6 inches that would make the basement remodel much easier.

My hot water heater is within 2' of my furnace. I had a new hot water heater and furnace installed 2 months ago and passed inspection in Warren with no problem,

You get enough sunlight in your basement to make hot water?

Try the morning. Most of the time those guys jet in the afternoon. I'd say that if there's a building code about it, you'd want to heed it....

IIRC, you need 24 inches of service clearance in front of the heater and 2 inches on the back and sides.

I really only need to move it 6 inches from its current spot. Right around 3 ft from the furnace in the end. That would allow me to put up a new door and close off the furnace room from the public eye.

Mine is 36" exactly from the water heater to the closest point on the furnace.

in my old house the furnace and water heater were in a closet room, the house was built on a slab.

there was maybe 8 inches between them.
