This does look very good! I'm also taking the BPI Heat Pro Class, It will be interesting to see the differences. Looking forward to learning a lot!

Im confused. In Part 5 you tore apart a furnace because a Home Inspector called out a crack in the heat exchanger, but the lesson seemed to indicate as a home inspector we only do visual inspections, so we would be unable to see such a crack, yet you pulled it apart and there was in fact a crack. How did the home inspector determine there was a crack?

Nice job as Dir of Edu Ben! You had big shoes to fill with Gerry.

Quick question. Does the course cover zone valves in relation to circulator pumps and vent dampers on a boiler system?

Just a quick question,

Could PVC or ABS pipe be used as high efficiency furnace air intake and flue pipe?
