You have set up a house for worst case depressurization and started the water heater up and you find combustion spillage. Now what. Is the cause a blocked or deteriorated chimney, undersized venting, too many vent elbows, too much depressurization caused by fans or the air handler or closing doors. Is it a combination of two or more of these? Should you replace the water heater? Gathering good data is critical. Come learn from an instructor that worked in the Minneapolis Sound Insulation Program, which became the basis for the BPI Combustion Safety Procedures, as he takes you through a step by step process to help diagnose the issues and present many practical solutions.
