Oil Furnaces

There are a number of people that still choose to heat their homes with oil furnaces. As a matter fact, oil furnaces are almost as popular as gas furnaces as a home heating option. There are certain areas of the country where oil heat is highly preferred. Oil furnaces are still used to provide individuals with a reliable source of heat during the colder months. CoolzHeating has many years of experience dealing with oil furnaces and we can assist you with the installation and maintenance of a new oil furnace in your home.

Anyone that is considering the installation of an oil furnace should be familiar with the operation. Oil furnaces utilize several components in order to produce a reliable heat source. These components include oil, an oil tank and a burner. Oil is the fuel source that is burned to provide the heat. The oil is purchased from an oil company and is stored in an oil tank until it is ready to be used. Oil tanks can be located above or underground and they must be properly maintained to prevent possible oil leakages. An oil company delivers the oil to the residence and pumps the oil into the oil tank. Many individuals establish auto refuel dates so that they can have a constant supply of oil during the winter months.

An oil furnace is activated via a thermostat. When the temperature in the home falls below the previously set temperature, the oil furnace begins to operate. The oil is filtered to the burner which is connected to the oil furnace. A spark is ignited which causes the oil to turn to a gas which is then processed through a heat exchanger. The heat is then distributed through the ventilation system of a home. Any excess gases associated with the burning of the oil are released through a flue.

In order to obtain the best energy efficiency when using an oil furnace it is important to choose a quality burner and furnace. CoolzHeating can help you select a modern furnace with an up-to-date burner so that you can enjoy warm heat at an affordable cost.
