Unfortunately, later in the season the people I was with and I did run into some trouble while in a serious snow storm in the middle of December.
The worst time to ever have trouble with the oil furnace is while in the Winter time season in this area. If the trouble with your oil furnace happens while in a Winter time storm, well, honestly then you are in real awful shape. My family plus I have lived in the north Midwest for 100 years. Winter time weather is never a surprise. I have definitely seen blizzards dump 2 or 3 feet of snow in less than an afternoon plus I have seen chilly rain quickly fall like huge pellets of hail. Winter time is never the time to have any type of trouble with your oil furnace. I can tell you this from experience, because I personally had trouble with our oil furnace this winter. I had a tune up in November plus the Heating as well as A/C professional told me he did not find any complications. Unfortunately, later in the season the people I was with and I did run into some trouble while in a serious snow storm in the middle of December. I have some knowledge of heating repairs plus oil furnace complication shooting, although at that point I could not repair the issue on our own plus I was forced to call the trusty heating business. Even though I called early in the afternoon, I still had to spend our money for a massive repair fee for same-day service. The heating supplier did not even repair our oil furnace until much later in the afternoon plus I still had to spend excessive amounts of our money to have the job completed on the same afternoon. Unfortunately, I couldn’t argue with the heating supplier that day because they are the only people in this part that will repair our equipment.
