Oil Furnace Cleaning Tips

To maintain your oil furnace and keep it running efficiently, we recommend annual servicing from a trained HVAC professional. As grime and soot can build up over time, it makes your furnace work harder, causing strain and increasing your energy costs. At a minimum, it should be cleaned at the beginning of each heating season, but repeating mid-year will help keep your gas furnace in peak condition and help prevent future problems. We recommend that you contact your Carrier expert to perform this service.
