RSES releases new NATE prep guide
The series of manuals is designed to give HVACR technicians and installers the tools they need to understand the concepts required to pass the North American Technician Excellence examinations.
The gas and oil manual is 134 pages and includes an introduction to the technology, as well as information on combustion, furnace installation, venting, airflow, troubleshooting, oil burners, oil tanks, and preventive maintenance. The manual is printed on recycled paper and features full-color graphics.
“Today’s HVACR service professional is more time-pressed than ever,” said John Iwanski, director of publishing for the Refrigeration Service Engineers Society. “The gas and oil heating title - RSES’ fourth book in the ‘Preparing for the NATE Exam’ series - focuses specifically on residential and light-commercial fossil-fuel heating systems that use gas or oil as a heat source. The book allows a technician to learn and understand key concepts for either the NATE gas heating or NATE oil heating exam, and presents the material in an easy-to-understand manner that will prepare the reader and keep them engaged without overwhelming them.”
In addition, RSES also offers Core Essentials, Air Conditioning and Heat Pumps, and Air Distribution as part of its NATE Exam series. Additional titles in refrigeration and hydronics will be offered soon, officials said.
