Description: Performing safety testing and deciding pass/fail is not enough these days. Customers want to know why their system has failed a test and what should be done to fix it.

  • Proper testing procedures

  • What to recommend when a test fails.
  • When it is appropriate for a homeowner to address a issue versus when a professional is required
  • Identification heating/cooling systems by fuel/venting category, etc.

  • Carbon Monoxide testing failure causes
  • Fuel type identification
  • Burner Type identification
  • Venting category Identification
