The information in this and other older oil-heat installation & service books can be particularly helpful because older texts focus on how to diagnose and fix problems along with an understanding of their cause - a view that makes for more effective heating system troubleshooting and repair.
Watch out: in attempting to fix or install any heating equipment you must understand that there are real and potential fire and life-safety hazards involved.
While it was often possible to get older oil fired heating equipment to run with use of your eye (smoke and flame) and spit (stack temperature temperatures), to properly install and adjust modern heating equipment requires training and special equipment.
A trained and experienced heating service technician should not only be expected to have these prerequisites, she or he also has seen many problems in the field and can often home in on the trouble and repair it quickly.
Key, in-depth oil fired heating equipment DIY articles are listed just below.
