Ventilation Guidelines Software
This program is a computerized version of TECA's Mechanical Ventilation Checklists from our Ventilation Guidelines Manual (Updated 2015). This software, like the Checklists, is ONLY available to those who have successfully completed the new Ventilation Guidelines Course and have been issued a Ventilation certificate. You must provide your current (2012) Ventilation Certification Number in the "Vent Stamp" area below to order this program.
The programs will produce Type 1 (Forced Air), Type 2 (HRV), Type 3 (CRV), or Type 4 (Small Dwelling) Checklists. Simple step-by-step procedures will guide you through an input sheet and will produce a print-ready output page virtually identical to the Checklists contained in your TECA Ventilation Guidelines manual.
Note: previous checklist versions (Type A, B, or C are no longer valid).
TECA's Quality First programs are provided on CD/DVD to run using MSExcel™2010 (.xlsx extension).
