Most of today’s residential and light commercial fossil fuel heating systems use either gas or oil as the fuel source. Much of the information in this book is relative to both types of systems. There are some differences between gas and oil, of course, and those differences are noted so that the technician who wishes to become NATE-certified can prepare for either the Gas Heating exam or the Oil Heating exam. The final three Chapters in this book are devoted to oil systems.

EPA 608 Certification Test Prep

Taking the EPA Section 608 certification is a crucial step for anyone who wants to work in the HVAC field. It may be possible that you’ll never have to handle refrigerants, but that’s unlikely since they’re essential not only for food cooling systems but also for air conditioning and related systems on homes.

Successfully passing this test gives you a lifelong license to be able to buy, recycle, reclaim and recover the refrigerants you’ll want to work with. It’s also good across the country
