FURNACE PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE
CIS offers preventative maintenance packages for your waste oil furnace. We recommend to take advantage of these options in the off-season to ensure your furnace is ready to provide you with FREE heat as soon as it gets cold.
Tuning-up your burner will let you rest assured that your furnace will run optimally during the heating season. The Preventative Maintenance tune-up means "replace it before it breaks". It's easy and cost efficient to replace a worn out part during the tune-up. Your CIS technician will be looking for problems with your furnace before they become costly out of pocket repairs. A tune-up can also uncover the need for parts that need replacing and help you to avoid an emergency service call when you need shop heat the most.
A CIS burner tune-up includes:
- Tearing down and cleaning burner
- Removing, soaking and flushing oil heater block by hand
- Tuning-up burner
- Replacing worn out parts
- Test firing burner
- Returning burner through a technician who will prime and reinstall the system
After the heating season is over and before the ash inside the furnace starts drawing moisture is the best time for a cleanout. A furnace should be cleaned out every 500-700 hours; it starts losing efficiency at 500 hours. By 700 hours the furnace has enough ash to cause excessive heat build-up which can cause significant damage so don’t delay your cleanout!
A CIS furnace cleanout includes
- Cleaning ash from combustion chamber and heat exchanger
- Servicing filters
- Adjusting burner
- Test firing furnace system
- Inspecting complete system
