The Complete Guide to Residential Oil Heating

Price: $40.00


Written and illustrated by James Ries, The Complete Guide to Residential Oil Heating is just that; a concise, step-by-step guide from individual components through advanced troubleshooting of oil heating systems. This training guide will take readers from the basic component descriptions, their integrations within the system, their function, possible problems with corresponding solutions, and finally maintenance, repair, and replacement.

Some of the unique and outstanding features you will find in this book include: component/illustration listing; troubleshooting flow-charts which will enable the reader to quickly narrow down a problem thought simple yes-or-no answers and achieve a solution; and wiring at a level that will be easy for the first time student as well as the more advanced user to understand.
