1 The Importance of Combustion Testing Testo HVAC Distributor Training:

2 Page 2Testo USA,Presentation Title (version), Author, Date, Confidentiality Agenda Why Test? What to Test? Why Testo?

3 Page 3Testo USA,Presentation Title (version), Author, Date, Confidentiality Why Test? Safety / Liability Efficiency Appliance Operation / Longevity Revenue / Cost Savings / Professionalism

4 Page 4Testo USA,Presentation Title (version), Author, Date, Confidentiality Why Combustion Test: Safety Carbon Monoxide (CO) can be lethal Over 500 deaths / year; 15,000 ER visits/ year CO originates from incomplete combustion Reasons for the formation: Fuel rich mixture Improper venting Cooling of the flame temperture

5 Page 5Testo USA,Presentation Title (version), Author, Date, Confidentiality Carbon Monoxide Facts Odorless Colorless Tasteless Mixes well in air Poisonous

6 Page 6Testo USA,Presentation Title (version), Author, Date, Confidentiality Why Test: Efficiency Combustion Efficiency = Fuel Savings 1% increase in efficiency nets 1% fuel savings Ensures the equipment is operating at optimal efficiency Saves on both fuel and electricity usage Customer expects the system to operate at stated efficiency There is a difference between combustion efficiency and AFUE Customer receives what they expect Performance Verification

7 Page 7Testo USA,Presentation Title (version), Author, Date, Confidentiality Why Test: Operation and Longevity Heat Exchangers Cracked HX investigation via O2 - Monitor for changes in O2 when blower starts and stops - Monitor O2 during ventilation air test as outlined in the Intl. Fuel Gas Code, Appendix D Nether should affect furnace operation or the O2 reading!

8 Page 8Testo USA,Presentation Title (version), Author, Date, Confidentiality CO and Efficiency Tests can be billable services Reduce Call Backs from improper installs or trouble- shooting Prevent unnecessary warranty disputes Professionalism of having the right tools for the job Professionalism of being a solutions provider You are providing safety, comfort, and savings Without measurements you’re just guessing! Differentiate the company and yourself Offer something your competition doesn’t offer or Offer it in a superior format Why Test: Revenue, Cost Reduction, & Professionalism

9 Page 9Testo USA,Presentation Title (version), Author, Date, Confidentiality What to test… Oxygen (%O 2 ): primarily determines complete combustion Carbon Dioxide (%CO 2 ): the maximized value relative to efficiency and “ideal combustion”, but does not necessarily indicate complete combustion. Carbon Monoxide (CO): lethal gas formed from incomplete combustion Excess Air: Needed to show complete combustion, but high values indicate high heat stack loss – poor efficiency. Efficiency: represents the total amount of heat available from the fuel minus the losses from the gasses going up the stack Temperature (ambient and stack): Needed to determine efficiency Draft pressure: Confirms the proper venting of combustibles out of the flue, an appliance has 5 minutes to prove draft under ANSI standards Pressure: Confirmation or setting of gas pressures
