Your oil furnace should regularly be fully evaluated and cared for by a professional at least once every other year, and doing it in the Summer months means you have plenty of time to maintenance any particularly major problems should anything else arise. Fall can become occasionally short in various parts of the country; waiting till this time of year can also run the risk of a surprise Wintertime storm without a fully functioning heater.

A little TLC for your gas oil furnace throughout this Summer is all it takes to insure a safe and sizzling winter.
