Why Oil Heating Tune-Up & Preventive Maintenance is Important for Furnace and Boiler?

When operating a furnace or a boiler working on liquid fuel (oil) in a residential or a commercial property, the main factor for trouble-free operation is the preventative tune-ups and cleaning of the boiler (mechanical and chemical), maintenance and adjustment of the burner. Generally, homeowners don’t pay attention to this which may lead to the premature failure of the oil burner or even a whole system.

Keep in mind that:

  • Small deposits on the inner walls of the combustion chamber may lead to a decrease in the oil boiler efficiency by 10-15%.
  • Cleaning of oil boilers should be carried out at least twice a year, in some cases three times a year. Additionally, maintenance of the boiler must be performed both chemical and mechanical.
  • Frequency of preventive maintenance depends on the quality of oil and its usage.

These are the most common problems causing improper combustion, contamination, and failure of the oil furnace or boiler:

  • Incorrect adjustment of the burner to the parameters of combustion of oil;
  • Insufficient maintenance of the oil burner;
  • Control elements not set to equipment manufacturer requirements;
  • Poorly installed fuel line;
  • Low quality fuel oil;
  • Lack timely replacement of oil filter for the burner;
  • Quality of installed accessories and materials furnace and boiler equipment;
  • Neglected oil heater tune-up.

The advantages of qualified and professional oil heating tune-up and maintenance:

  • Reduced fuel consumption;
  • Increased efficiency and lifespan of the oil burning system;
  • Heating cycle time reduction in the heat exchanger;
  • Additionally, minimized chance of  malfunction of heating system during winter months;
  • Less pollutant emissions into the environment.

It’s very important to make sure that HVAC contractor which provides oil furnace and boiler heating tune-up and maintenance has a valid certificate of the manufacturer, authorizing the company to perform works on oil furnace installation, repairs and maintenance.


Importantly, the absence of a valid certificate from your Oil Furnace or Oil Boiler might void the manufacturer warranty.
