Furnace maintenance and cleaning is one of the most overlooked things in most people's homes. The reason for that is simple, if it works then why worry about it? Well that is actually the main reason to have an annual service performed on your furnace. While the technician is inside performing the cleaning on your furnace he is also checking all of the safety features of the furnace that would only be needed if there is a problem. He will test all of the safety sensors designed to stop the furnace from trying to start if there are any issues. Like the flame sensor that is designed to stop the flow of propane or oil if the flame goes out or the pressure sensor which stops the furnace if the vent becomes blocked. The cleaning is actually more of a safety check for your furnace as well as keeping it running at peak efficiency.
In many cases oil heat is still the best way to go and one of the most common services that comes up is tank replacement. Regulations now require that any new tanks installed be a minimum of double bottomed meaning two layers of material on the bottom of the tank with a monitored space in between. Have us give you an estimate and discuss any other additions you may need to your system.
