Combustion venting student manual/reference text: NH17-118/1991E-PDF

"This manual has been prepared for Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation in cooperation with the Canadian Gas Association to provide heating service technicians with the most up-to date information available on the venting of the products of combustion of conventional (naturally aspirated) gas and oil fired appliances. It is intended to be used as both a student text and as a reference manual. ... The manual describes the proper operation of a chimney and the symptoms of spillage of combustion products. The authors have included checklists that can be used to determine whether a venting problem exists. The manual provides test procedures for the service technician to evaluate a combustion venting system and to detect a leaking heat exchanger. Remedial measures, to solve problems once they have been detected, are also discussed in some detail"--Introd., p. 1-1.
