The blog article itself gave DIY tips on both gas and oil-burning furnaces. That’s because they operate slightly differently and each has its own unique set of maintenance requirements and it's important to know the difference in order to get DIY maintenance right. In the blog post written by this reputable HVAC Contractor, it first talked about the DIY maintenance checklist for gas burning furnaces. The post mentioned that since a vital part of these systems is the air they take into them, it’s important to keep the areas around them clean, dust-free, and unblocked. It also mentioned the importance of maintaining the air filters on the system properly. When these get dirty it results in less airflow getting into the system and it makes the unit work harder. This results in energy loss due to less furnace efficiency.

The article also talked about DIY checklist items for oil-burning furnaces. These too have delicate air systems and filters that need to be taken care of the same way as gas burning furnaces. They are different than gas-burning furnaces in that they have an additional oil filter on them that needs to be periodically changed. In the blog, it mentions that soot building up around the furnace can be a sign the systems oil filter needs changing. Also on the DIY checklist for oil furnaces, it mentioned that black smoke coming out of the chimney indicates the oil filter needs changing or there may be a more serious burner problem.

It was also mentioned in the blog that both of these furnace systems should have regular maintenance performed on them by professionals. This can be done at any time of the year and will help keep furnaces working at a higher efficiency. The article mentioned that during professional furnace maintenance, such important steps as burner and air circulating system cleaning takes place. Special attention is also paid to blower motors, fan belts, and burner nozzles during routine professional maintenance sessions. This is also a time when many small problems can be corrected before they become much costlier repairs further on down the road.
