BPI CEU credits: 2

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. This class will teach the “how’s and why’s” of combustion safety testing and duct testing. The class is held at CEMA’s Heating lab in Cromwell, CT this allows hands on learning with many types of heating and cooling systems.

 

The class will discuss:

  • Proper testing procedures
  • Why common tests fail

  • 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.
  • Spillage testing / Draft testing failure causes
  • Carbon Monoxide testing failure causes
  • Fuel type identification
  • Burner Type identification
  • Venting category Identification
  • Testing limitations under BPI and HES guidelines.
  • BTU rating of combustion appliances.

 

 

Prerequisite: This course is open to all students who have an interest and desire to learn how to perform energy audits and provide recommendations to the homeowner on improvements to improve the home’s energy performance.
