Testing Oil-fired Appliance Depressurization Spillage
House depressurization can cause combustion spillage, which may have health implications and will create objectionable odours with oil (or wood) appliances. This document relates how one manufacturer of oil appliances investigated solutions for spillage. In partnership with CMHC and NRCan, Kerr Heating Products of Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, constructed an in-house depressurization test facility for evaluating the spillage resistance of oil-fired appliances. The spillage test can be easily and inexpensively implemented by other manufacturers.
