Fixing my oil furnace

When my old electric oil furnace died on myself and others recently, it was for the fourth time this year.

Since it’s always freezing in my area, I do tend to put a lot of stress & demand on the electric oil furnace to keep myself and others warm.

I have portable space gas heating systems that I set up in each room, & use as needed when the oil furnace can’t seem to keep up! However, I will say that the a/c unit works far more effectively than the oil furnace does. I bring it up, because the a/c unit is twice the age of the electric oil furnace! There’s no reason for this fairly young piece of heating equipment to keep having dire issues! Finally, I contacted 1 of these local heating & a/c repair companies, & they dispatched a worker to my apartment after I explained what was happening, and when he arrived, the Heating & A/C repair worker introduced himself with a super professional tone. He was absolutely professional, but also had no issue talking with myself and others as he handled the repairs for the system. I had to admit, the guy had a way with people! Anyway, he worked away at the electric oil furnace for about twenty minutes. I watched as he opened up the oil furnace, & got into the firebox for the piece of equipment. As he looked around, he cleaned off the burners for the firebox, & suctioned out some dust & dirt using a small shop-vac he brought with him into my basement. Not even 10 minutes later, the two of us had the oil furnace up & running without issue! Both of us were elated to say the least.
