    Default Smoke Generators for By-Passes

    Does any on use Smoke Generators During an Inspection? I find it as a good Client Ed Tool.
    But not sure which one is Better. Any ideas. I was looking at a powder-Puffer,
    Puffer Canister or a Smoke Pen.

    Any Input !!

    Rick,

    I don't use any smoke generators.

    The few I've seen are the powder puffers.

    I check the gas water heater for spillage with a mirror.

    If the blower motor door is leaking you can strike a match and blow it out quickly for a small amount of smoke.

    Heck I'm Happy if it has a door and the kick out switch works when I remove it.

    Dosen't Any one use a Blower Door to Check Air Change or to find By-Passes
    I thing we are talking about energy rater blower door testing, not furnace blower door switches.

    I don't use 'em my self.
