Spillage Testing

Spillage Testing
Combustion spillage is a term used to describe unwanted flow of combustion gases into your home. The quantities involved are usually small however, combustion spillage is a serious health hazard and should be dealt with asap.

Combustion Appliances:
  • Gas fired furnace, boiler or water heater
  • Oil fired furnace, boiler or water heater
  • Wood stove or fireplace
  • Portable propane, natural gas or kerosene heaters
  • Other fuel burning devices (gas)

These are normally vented to the outdoors through a chimney or vent pipe. Unfortunately, in some instances they may instead escape into your home which can cause problems.

The test involves running all of the exhaust fans to test to see if combustion gases can be pulled into your home by the exhaust systems. If you are at risk, the energy advisor will let you know.
