Testing Combustion Appliance

One of the more critical inspections you can make on the home is to test combustion appliances for leaks in the fuel lines and exhaust flues. Whether it runs on natural gas, propane, or diesel fuel, a combustion appliance that leaks fuel or carbon monoxide into the home poses a serious risk to the occupant. Inspecting the equipment and verifying that it is operating in a safe manner is a very important step in ensuring the health and safety of the occupants.

After completing this lesson, crew chiefs will be able to:

  • Identify the tools needed to test combustion appliances
  • Explain how leaks in the fuel lines or exhaust flues pose a danger to the occupants
