Servicing Gas and Electric Furnaces & Heat Pumps And Combustion Analysis Certification

Three-day Heating Systems Workshop

Servicing Gas and Electric Furnaces & Heat Pumps And Combustion Analysis Certification


This workshop is designed for maintenance personnel who are responsible for the installation, troubleshooting, repair, and maintenance of LP or natural gas furnaces, electric furnaces, and heat pumps. Information on how to properly install, maintain, and troubleshoot forced air heating equipment is covered in step-by-step detail. The topics of proper air flow in heating equipment, how to identify and solve duct problems, safety, and proper use of test and service equipment related to servicing gas and electric furnaces and heat pumps are demonstrated. This workshop also prepares technicians to accomplish a multiple-choice exam on carbon monoxide and combustion analysis certification.

An interactive, take-home workbook that visually and descriptively explains how to test components, use wiring diagrams, and diagnose heating equipment problems, is issued to each participant for use during the workshop, and also serves as a reference manual for use later on the job.


What You’ll Learn In This Workshop                  

  • Installation Considerations for Furnaces & Heat Pumps
  • Proper Air Flow in Heating Equipment
  • Combustion, Vent and Heat Exchange System Inspection in Gas Furnaces
