    Makeup air

    Yes, but the best way is to isolate the fireplace from the furnace. Burning outside air is better than burning conditioned air.

    School Advice

    My advice is to choose the school with the quickest curriculum and job placement help. YOU WILL GET OUT OF ANY SCHOOL WHAT YOU PUT IN. Get working and learn the rest OTJ.
