Doing Your Part to Keep Your HVAC System Running

A few months ago, my air conditioner completely died. I woke up in the middle of the night covered in sweat, and I didn't know what to do. The next day, I called an HVAC expert, and they came out to inspect my system. It turned out that it had failed because of filthy filters and a clogged return duct, which made me sick to my stomach. I had caused the problem, and I needed to learn how to fix things. My HVAC professional taught me a few easy maintenance techniques that I didn't know before, so that I could maintain my new system.

The Furnace Installation Guide To Energy-Efficient Heating Oil Systems


When you need to have a new heating system installed, there are a lot of options for the type of system. One of the options that can be installed in your home is a heating oil furnace. These systems can be an efficient solution for the heating needs of your home. The following furnace installation guide will help you plan the design of your system:

Installing Oil Storage Tanks

The oil storage tanks are some of the most important components of your new furnace. If you have an existing storage tank, it needs to be inspected. If the tank is damaged, it may need to be removed and replaced before a new one can be installed. If you are replacing another type of heating system, you will need to have a new oil storage tank installed.  

Installation of the Furnace

After the heating oil tank has been installed, the furnace installation can be done. At this stage, the size of the furnace needs to be determined. These furnaces can be multistage systems that provide your heating with an efficient solution. Multistage systems operate in different stages, which ensures energy is not lost when the furnace is on. Most new gas and oil furnaces that are installed in homes are multistage designs.

Adding Efficient Oil Furnace Equipment

There are also options for more efficient equipment that can be installed with your furnace. The efficient equipment can be the fuel system and blower. The fuel system can have an electric ignition instead of a pilot light. For the blower, a variable-speed design will be a much more efficient solution for your HVAC. Better filtration and fuel delivery for oil furnaces can provide more efficiency for new heating systems.

Upgrading the Furnace Controls

There are also a lot of options to consider to upgrade the furnace controls. These controls can allow you to control different aspects of the heating system in your home. For example, if your system has an integrated humidifier, you can control the climate in your home. This can be good during the winter months when the air in your home may be dry. With a programable thermostat, you will also be able to program that climate in your home for efficiency.

The installation of a new oil furnace can be a great solution for an efficient HVAC system. Contact a furnace installation service to discuss some of these options for your home.
