oil boiler...
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 1 year ago

You're burner needs a tune up and the boiler needs to be vacuumed out. Oil burners should be tuned up every year (2 years at most). Vacuuming the boiler is part of the tune up service.

Could it be done by myself?? I don't have any knowledge regarding boiler??
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 1 year ago

A tune up should be done by a trained burner tech. This is not a job for someone with no experience. Besides extensive training the burner tech has very expensive test equipment that is required to properly adjust the burner.
