So, you’ve made the decision to recycle waste oil into free heat for your building! Not only is this a huge cost saver for your business, but also an environmentally- friendly choice. Now it's time to start installing your Clean Burn furnace, which may take some extra time, but it is an efficient addition to any business that produces a lot of waste oil. Keep reading if you're interested in learning how to safely install your furnace!

A 3-Step Process For Installing Your Clean Burn Energy Furnace

1. Get the Required Tools and Materials

When you order a furnace, most of the required tools and materials will be included within the packaging. However, there are a few additional tools you'll want handy for the install. The following tools are required for furnace assembly and should be gathered before starting any procedures:

  • Open-end wrench
  • Medium flat-blade screwdriver
  • Medium adjustable wrench
  • Nut driver attachment for drill
  • Variable speed drill

Using the correct tools will ensure a successful build. Your included manual will specify which tools are needed for the different parts of the furnace. You may already have several of these tools in your toolbox. You’ll also want to make sure all parts are installed correctly to avoid any future mishaps with the furnace. If you prefer a professional furnace installation, at Interstate Energy we can install your furnace for you!

2. An Overview of the Assembly

When you are ready to install your furnace, be prepared to spend at least a few hours assembling the parts together. Just like a new piece of furniture, the furnace will come with a manual that will take you step-by-step through the build. The main aspects of the assembly for your Clean Burn furnace includes the following steps:

(1) Installing the Blower Assembly

(2) Installing the Hot Air Discharge Components

(3) Installing the Energy Retention Disc

(4) Installing the Burner

(5) Installing the Connector Block, Oil Line Tubing, and Air Line Tubing

These are general steps for each burner. At Interstate Energy, we offer six different types of furnaces that range in size. Additionally, Clean Energy uses specialized parts, such as the Class A rated flue pipe. Therefore, make sure to pay special attention to the manual you receive for any specific instructions. If the installation seems out of your range, contact a Clean Burn expert to get the job done for you.

3. Create a Maintenance Schedule

Once you have finished installing your furnace, you can begin heating your building! It is important to clean all the parts of the furnace regularly to keep it running smoothly. On average, Clean Burn furnaces need to be cleaned approximately every 1,000 hours. If you don't have a Clean Burn heater, then you may need to clean it more frequently than that interval.

Should you run into any issues with the furnace along the way, try out some of our troubleshooting tips. You can avoid pricey repairs by keeping an eye out for any changes in the furnace. However, if you’re feeling overwhelmed (or underqualified) to troubleshoot your waste oil furnace on your own, we highly recommend working with a professional furnace installer like our experts at Interstate Energy.
