2.0201.3 Vented Combustion Appliance Safety Testing

Topic: 
Combustion Safety
Subtopic: 
Combustion Safety General
Desired Outcome: 
Accurate information about appliance safe operation is gathered
TitleSpecification(s)Objective(s)
2.0201.3a
Spillage Test

In conditions with largest negative pressure as determined from Detail 2.0201.1e:

If spillage in a combustion appliance with a warm vent exceeds two minutes during pressure testing, specify measures to mitigate

If spillage in a combustion appliance with a cold vent exceeds five minutes during pressure testing, specify measures to mitigate

Detect excessive spillage of combustion gases

2.0201.3b
Carbon monoxide ( CO CO Carbon monoxide ) test in appliance vent

CO CO Carbon monoxide will be tested for in undiluted flue gases of combustion appliances

In conditions with largest negative pressure as determined from Detail 2.0201.1e:

If CO CO Carbon monoxide levels exceed 400 ppm air-free measurement in furnaces, service will be provided to reduce CO CO Carbon monoxide to below these levels (unless CO CO Carbon monoxide measurement is within manufacturer specifications)

If CO CO Carbon monoxide levels exceed 200 ppm air-free measurement in water heaters or room heaters, service will be provided to reduce CO CO Carbon monoxide to below these levels (unless CO CO Carbon monoxide measurement is within manufacturer specifications)

Measure CO CO Carbon monoxide and report excessive levels

2.0201.3c
Final test out

Final combustion testing will be conducted at project completion to ensure compliance with the above specifications

Ensure safe operation of combustion appliance within the whole house system after any repair project
