But before that happens, something may go wrong with your furnace or boiler. Keep an eye out for any of these problems. If any of them do come up, contact us right away for a service call before the problem gets worse and possibly creates a bigger, more expensive problem.

Heating System Issues To Watch For

  1. The temperature of your home does not reach the set temperature on your thermostat.
  2. You are using the same amount of fuel, but your fuel bills are going up.
  3. You hear grinding or banging sounds when your heat is running.
  4. Your baseboards will not heat up.
  5. Your system will not stay on or will not even turn on.
  6. Your system will not turn off.
  7. Your system cycles on and off more frequently.

If your furnace or boiler does not turn on at all, do these troubleshoots before calling us. You may be able to get your heating system up and running without needing a service call.

Be Proactive With Heating Maintenance

If you get through to the end of the heating season without any problems, take advantage of the opportunity to take care of your furnace or boiler.

First, contact us to schedule its annual maintenance tune-up. This is the optimal time for heating system service, as our service technicians’ schedule is more flexible before the spring rush for air conditioning tune-ups ahead of summer. You also put yourself ahead of the game. You don’t have to worry about scheduling it for the fall or getting caught by an early cold snap.

Second, have Cubby Oil fill your heating oil tank with our B40 Bioheat® SuperPlus. You won’t have to set up a delivery in the fall, so you’ll be ready whenever cool weather comes. A full heating tank also protects it from corrosion caused by condensation buildup on the walls of the empty part of your heating tank. Condensation occurs more easily in warmer weather.

Third, enroll in a Cubby Oil service plan. The regular maintenance covered in the service plan helps keep your furnace or boiler running at its best possible efficiency. Also, if your heating system does break down, you get priority service and discounts on repairs.
