PRLog - Dec. 8, 2009 - TORONTO, Canada -- Does your furnace intimidate you? Centennial College is offering a new Saturday seminar intended to acquaint homeowners with their own furnace and the different types of forced-air central heating systems available on the market.

Participants will learn the function, terminology and differences between standard, mid-efficiency and high-efficiency furnaces. Other topics of the six-hour weekend seminar include preventative maintenance and the functions of various controls and furnace accessories such as humidifiers and air cleaners.

Instructor Rob Brooks, a licensed gasfitter who has been working with heating and cooling systems for almost 15 years, will demystify the common furnace using a complete demonstration model in the classroom. Brooks will emphasize the safe operation of equipment, which often involves removing flammable substances and materials away from the vicinity of the furnace.

With the popularity of government incentives to replace aging systems with more energy-efficient models, consumers are looking for information and knowledge so that they can make an informed buying decision, says Brent Groh, coordinator of continuing education at Centennial College.

“The resulting knowledge helps provide homeowners with some degree of confidence with respect to understanding how their furnace operates,” Groh says. “It also gives them the opportunity to comparison shop the different brands and systems on the market, so that they can ask the right questions before committing to a new furnace and air conditioner, which can cost up to $10,000 these days.”

The course is intended to help homeowners understand their heating system and perform simple maintenance tasks – but not repairs, which must always be performed by a licensed professional. The course fee is $75.

Centennial offers more than 1,000 career-related and personal-interest continuing education courses starting in January. For more details about Central Heating Systems for the Homeowner, course code CESD-922, call 416-289-5300.
