Preparing for the NATE Exam: Gas and Oil Heating


Preparing for the NATE Exam is a series of training manuals designed to give HVACR technicians and installers the tools they need to be successful in mastering the key concepts required to pass the NATE examinations. Each manual in the series is written in clear and concise language and illustrated with full color-color graphics that clarify important details.

The Gas and Oil Heating title is approximately 134 pages and includes the following topics:
• Introduction to Gas and Oil Heating
• Combustion
• Furnace Installation
• Venting
• Air Flow
• Troubleshooting
• Oil Burners
• Oil Tanks
• Preventive Maintenance

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.


Note:  To protect the integrity of the NATE exam, no active NATE test questions appear in the end-of-chapter practice questions in this guide.
