I thought my roommate was just being a baby when she was complaining about the loft being too chilly. But after a week or so of heavy sweaters indoors in late fall, I realized that she might be onto something rather than being dramatic. I started poking around online to see if I could discover what was wrong with our oil furnace on my own, however this is not our first year renting this place, so I knew already that it wasn’t any drafts. We had already dealt with those last year, but what I found online was certainly surprising. Apparently, oil heating systems needed to be replaced each and every year, otherwise than can break down far sooner than they are supposed to last for. I thought it was only central A/C that needed cleaning and tender love and care, since A/C systems have duct labor and air filters that can leak or become disfigured over time. I called my proprietor and asked him when the last time he had an HVAC repairman by the house too inspect our oil heater. He confessed that she had never sent one over in his life, not since she installed the current oil tank plan two years ago. When I told him the oil furnace was no longer effectively working to keep the loft warm, she agreed that it was time to call in a oil furnace maintenance professional ASAP. The repair girl from the heating as well as A/C company was both friendly and helpful. She showed me everything I could do to insure the oil furnace was running its best, even washing the oil furnace filter. I didn’t even know there was such a thing!
