About the Class
The objective of this seminar is to teach the most effective way to locate, identify and prevent premature failures in residential furnace heat exchangers. This fully hands-on training course uses over 50 furnaces and heat exchangers.
Each student will learn where defects commonly occur due to metal behavior tendencies in every furnace make and model. We cover histories of consistent defects and failures in various heat exchangers over the past 50 years, as well as defects that occur in newer, high-efficiency furnaces.
Furthermore, we instruct attendees to guide the customer through the inspection to validate their findings, eliminating customer uncertainty.
Heat Exchanger Experts, Inc. will provide a copy of the fully updated training manual, a booklet with materials covered in class, and a certificate of completion wallet card to each attendee.
Class will adjourn only after all questions are answered, usually between 3:00-4:00.
- Identify cracked heat exchangers quickly and efficiently, saving time and money;
- Learn the process of walking through inspections with customers in order to prove findings;
- Predetermine whether a heat exchanger will likely be defective simply by assessing the quality of the installation;
- Build trust and confidence in the customer, eliminating guessing;
- Learn to sell a new furnace using your findings from the inspection;
- Identify wear patterns and areas prone to defects on all makes and models of furnaces;
- Learn the 10 additional reasons a heat exchanger cracks, regardless of the furnace make or model;
- Learn to increase sales, profits, and the safety of customers, immediately.
