How to Resolve Common Oil-Fired Furnace Issues

January 31, 2019

Now that the cold weather is here, New Jersey residents will be looking to their oil-fired furnaces for relief! Even with a full tank, however, if your furnace isn’t up for the challenge of winter you may find yourself bundling up with extra blankets.

Knowing what could be causing issues with your home’s oil-fired furnace can help save you a lot of headaches. Here are some common problems homeowners face, and what you can do to stay warm this winter:

  • Lack of maintenance
    An obvious way to avoid issues that stem from a lack of maintenance, is to schedule annual tune-ups from local full-service home comfort providers, such as our affiliate company, Tomasso Bros. Energy!

  • Dirty Filters
    Dirty or clogged filters reduce airflow, forcing a furnace to work harder to get warm air throughout the home. Cleaning the filter, or changing it, regularly will help get around this problem.

  • Furnace Doesn’t Heat Enough
    In addition to a clogged filter, a furnace may not produce enough heat if it’s the wrong size for your home. To remedy this, you may need to supplement your heating system with ductless heat pumps, or upgrading to a larger system all together.
