Waste Oil Burners After The Heating Season

Is it time to sit back and do nothing? NO. Your waste oil burner worked all heating season and now it is on a multi-month temporary retirement. There are service matters that can be done now to save you grief later. Did you flush your pump and burner out with diesel fuel and then cut off the power to the burner? Flushing gets the waste oil out that could deposit sediments in the lines and burner during the off-season. If power is left on the burner it will continue to preheat oil and accelerate the sediments to form as sludge in the lines. Without this preventative service you can expect nozzle plugs, and solenoids to stick in the Fall. Filters, valves, and tanks should be serviced now too. Firelake dealers are skilled to do this work and keep your troubles to a minimum.
