As heating equipment becomes more efficient, venting becomes more critical. With older equipment, high stack temperatures helped overcome poor installations and marginal chimneys. The NORA Gold Venting Certification class is designed to ensure venting is done correctly and in accordance with NFPA – 211 & Pennsylvania’s IRCC – International Residential Construction Code. The program includes the requirements for proper venting, which involves combustion air, dilution air, and ventilation air. This course is designed for solving venting issues but is also included in NORA’s Gold Program.
Registration fees include the following complimentary items:
