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.

How to Change Your Air Filter
