OIL HEATING SYSTEM
Soon after World War I, the oil burner began to capture the attention
of America with a promise of clean, dependable, fully automatic
central heating no coal to shovel, no dirty supply bin, no ashes
to take out. By 1928, half a million homeowners had converted their
coal furnaces to oil heating by adding a burner and rebuilding the
combustion chamber. Many of those old conversion heating units still
work faithfully and well along with some 12 million oil burners
of more modern design used in warm-air, hot-water and steam systems.
The high-pressure heating burner used in most homes does not simply
burn oil. It prepares a Mixture of air and oil (usually about 16
parts of air to one part of oil), sets this mixture aflame with
a powerful high-voltage spark, and burns it in an enclosed combustion
heating chamber. In this heating chamber; a continuous swirl of
yellow flame reaches temperatures as high as 3,2000, providing enough
heating from a single gallon of oil to warm a small house for two
hours in winter. or to make available a two-day supply of hot water
in the summer.
How the heating burner works
Outside air (curved arrow). forced into the air tube by the burner
blower, passes through deflector vanes that form the air stream
into a rapidly swirling spiral. At the same time. the heating pump
pulls oil from the tank through the oil line to the heating nozzle,
from which it emerges in a cone-shaped spray. At the nozzle, the
oil and air combine into a highly flammable mixture that is ignited
when the heating burner first goes on by a high- voltage spark that
flashes between two electrodes. The spark is required only for starting;
thereafter the flame (colored arrows) continues on its own.
An heating oil burner runs for about 1,500 hours during an average
heating season, year in and year out. Heating breakdowns and heating
repairs are rare. But steady operation may hide heating waste and
heating inefficiency. Unless the heating burner and the related
components of the heating system are properly adjusted, unnecessary
fuel is consumed, soot is created, heat output is diminished and
even the electric bills are inflated.
An annual heating inspection and heating routine maintenance by
a professional are almost essential before the start of each heating
season, and this care is generally included in the service contracts
most homeowners sign up for. The checklist opposite lists the chores
that a heating repair technician can be ex
Heating Oil-Burner Maintenance Checklist
You should have a heating repair technician inspect and adjust your

if necessary. The heating repair technician will generally do the

These are some additional maintenance steps that you can perform
routinely between inspections or whenever you suspect a problem:
If the motor has oil cups, lubricate it between inspections at the
intervals— usually twice yearly called for by the owners manual.
Use a few drops of electric-motor oil not all-purpose oil.
Clean the fan blower at least once between inspections. Turn off
the master switch and remove dust from the blades by inserting a
thin percolator brush through the air-intake openings. (NOTE: On
some burners, the housing swings up to expose the blower for cleaning.)
Check for air leaks around the mounting plate Opposite, left) and
seal if necessary.
Remove the stack control at least once between inspections and clean
soot from the heat sensor (opposite, right).
With the stack control removed, disassemble the stack and remove
the soot and rust by rapping each section sharply against a floor
covered with newspapers.
After you have replaced the stack and the stack control, reseal
the chimney connection with refractory cement.
Step outside occasionally when the burner is running and look at
your chimney. Black smoke is a sign of incomplete combustion. If
you spot it, call your serviceman.
