Should You Own a Combustion Analyzer?

In a recent article, HVAC industry veteran, Ray Wolfarth calls the combustion analyzer “one of the most cost-effective sales / service tools I have.” He continues to write, “If you service boilers, a combustion analyzer is almost a must-have tool. Some techs tell me they can eyeball the flame and adjust the air-to-fuel ratio. Even after four decades in the trade, I have never been able to do that. What looks like a good flame could be spewing thousands of parts per million of dangerous carbon monoxide out the flue.”

Not only does a combustion analyzer ensure the safe and efficient operation of critical appliances, he argues that it’s a key point of differentiation which can help contractors set themselves apart from their competition and grow their business. So, instead of asking if you should own a combustion analyzer; perhaps, you should be asking if you can afford not to own one.
