Utility Room Sizing


With a home that is built slab-on-grade, a 1st floor room will have to be used as the utility room to house the hot water tank, furnace, air handler, washer & dryer.

Currently it has been designed as sort of an "L" shaped room. The "L" portion of it is 21 square feet and the remainder is 19' long by 6' wide (114 sqft) for a total of 135 square feet.

Is this utility room sized good enough to fit all these items?

E. Panel(30")/WtrHtr(30")/Sink+Wsh/Dry(84")/HVAC/Return(48") =192"x30"
Aisle space in front of all the equipment (door c/l at laundry) =192"x34"
Overall mechanical room space (192"x64") = 85 Square feet

So with my 135 square feet, I should have decent room as your dimensions showed 85 square feet.
