UNDERSTANDING VENTING SYSTEM STANDARDS
Summary: This presentation will offer a brief overview on how today’s venting systems are different, why this is important, and why we should care.
Several points will be discussed including:
- Why standards are required along with a quick look at common chimney categories that are in use today
- How to determine what type of vent or chimney is suitable for a particular appliance
- Possible negative consequences if the wrong system is installed
- Potential exposure to liability for suppliers and contractors, and risk management tips
