Is It Time To Service Your CB-5000 Waste Oil Furnace?

Friday, 30 July 2021 13:35

Used oil heaters allow you to heat your small business for free and eliminate your cradle-to-grave liability. However, waste oil heating systems need to be serviced every now and then to keep them operating at peak efficiency. How can you tell if it's the right time to schedule service for your CB-5000 waste oil furnace?

As the only authorized Clean Burn distributor in Colorado and eastern Wyoming, we're here to provide some guidance to this FAQ.

What To Expect From Your Heater Service

During your service, a Clean Burn technician will take the time to thoroughly clean your heating system. They will then assess the current condition of your unit and check for any signs of damage or deterioration. They'll also closely examine your storage tanks and transfer pumps too.

They'll then make any necessary repairs to your system and replace parts of your unit if needed. Throughout the entire maintenance process, your technician will take steps to ensure the heater is operating exactly how it should.

4 Signs It's Time To Schedule Service For Your Clean Burn Waste Oil Furnace

Throughout the year, pay close attention to your Clean Burn waste oil heater and be on the lookout for these 4 signs.

1. Your Heater Smells Funny

Clean Burn heaters have been specifically designed to burn waste oil cleanly and efficiently. That means your heater shouldn't emit any foul smells or unpleasant odors.

The next time that your heating system is running, check for any strong scents like smoke, burning rubber, or burning oil. Those odors may indicate that something is seriously wrong with your furnace and it may be a sign of a safety hazard (OSHA).

If you notice any strange smells around your furnace, get it inspected by a Clean Burn technician.

2. Your Heater Makes Odd Noises

Does your heater make any loud bangs while running? What about strange whistling noises? Have you ever heard any other odd noises coming from your heating unit? If so, it's time to get it serviced.

Your Clean Burn heating system should be relatively quiet while operating, so take note of any out-of-the-ordinary noises that your system makes.

3. Your Energy Bills Have Increased Recently

Have your energy bills experienced a sudden increase? That may be an indication your furnace is not running efficiently.

Some parts of your used oil heater may have become clogged or worn down due to gradual usage. This, in turn, may cause your heater to run poorly and your building's heating system is forced to pick up the slack.

Be sure to compare your recent energy bills to ones from previous years. If you've noticed an unexpected spike in your energy costs, then it's time to get your heating system serviced by a pro.

4. Your Heater Was Last Serviced Over A Year Ago

It's a good idea to get your used oil furnace serviced by Clean Burn professionals at least once every year. That annual service will help ensure that your appliance is working properly and at peak efficiency.

If your heater is used heavily throughout the year, it's wise to get your heater serviced every 6 months (Sperrs).
