Gas Heating: Venting

Venting is the process of removing combustion by-products from the appliance and moving them to the outside atmosphere. In addition to removing combustion gases, the venting process creates pressure needed in the appliance to draw in combustion air. There are various furnace and boiler systems that utilize different venting methods. It is important that draft and venting be properly understood by all technicians.

This course provides detailed text and images as well as video lecture to aid in comprehension of the materials.

End of course review questions will test your comprehension of the materials presented in the course.
