Oil Furnaces

Creating a warm and comfortable home is important when the weather gets chilly. An oil furnace is an efficient option for homeowners in Maryland.  Department of Ecology studies show that oil heats 16 % more efficiently than natural gas and oil-based heat systems perform at an efficiency rate of 85-95 % or higher  If you are interested in learning more about Oil Furnaces contact W.L.

Oil furnaces use petroleum based fuels such as diesel or kerosene to create heat. The oil furnace consists of a storage tank, an oil burner, a heat exchanger, filters and a blower motor. Oil from the tank is sprayed onto electrodes in the burner and ignited, transferring the heat to the heat exchanger. This violent type of ignition allows oil furnaces to heat your home very quickly. When the air inside the heat exchanger gets warmer it rises and pushes the cold air down into the burners. The hot air is then pushed out into your home’s ductwork by a blower fan, and return ducts bring more cold air into the furnace.

Benefits Of Oil Furnace Installation

Most oil furnaces have an average Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) of 83, meaning that 83% of the fuel they burn goes to heating your house. In some areas, traditional furnace oil can be mixed with biodiesel to reduce the harmful environmental effects even further. Oil furnaces also have a very long lifespan, usually lasting upwards of 15 to 20 years with little to no maintenance aside from periodic changing of the fuel filter. Also, oil furnaces draw fuel from a storage tank located on your property. This way you always have your own supply, even when other sources of fuel, such as natural gas or propane, are not available.

In addition to being energy efficient, oil furnaces are a very safe and clean choice for your home’s heating system. Modern oil furnaces produce very little smoke and soot and their exhaust stays in the furnace instead of being released into the atmosphere. For further increased efficiency, you can also add a two stage burner when you install an oil furnace. A two stage boiler runs more quietly, is more energy efficient and can prolong the life of your furnace.

If you want all of the efficiency of an oil furnace in your Anne Arundel County, Maryland home, call W.L. Staton Plumbing, Heating and Cooling today. We can install an oil furnace in your home so that you stay comfortable all winter long. We can also service your existing oil furnace to make sure you get as much life out of it as possible.

Great experience with this company. They were able to diagnose and fix our issues so quickly, and the technician (Shawn) took lots of time to answer all my questions. We had a tricky place to tuck in our new hot water heater, and he made sure everything fit right, even though it meant running back out to get a different piece/fitting. Everything was cleaned up and working when he left--couldn't be happier!

I called and the receptionist was very friendly and had Joe come out the same day. Joe explained everything he was going to do and kept me informed. He was very kind and easy to communicate with. Job was finished very quickly but Thoroughly he even looked at my faucet that was a bit loose. I would highly recommend WL Staton plumbing company.Happy customerJ. Ginsburg

We signed up for their maintenance agreement, which provides us with a Spring/Summer system check and a Fall/Winter check, and recently had the technicians out for our first check of the year. They were extremely professional, took lots of detailed notes and pictures of the system (which, we found out is because IF we ever have a problem in the future they'll already know what parts the unit uses and have them on the truck so repairs can go faster!), opened up the outside unit to make sure there were no potential problems (mostly looking for nests or animals of any kind since that's been a problem in our neighborhood), and even swapped out the filter. Within minutes of leaving, I received a fully detailed report from the technician complete with all the pictures they took. Knowing the system has been thoroughly inspected and giving a clean bill of health, is a huge weight off my mind.

This was a complicated and serious job. The team had to dig a 4 foot wide by 10 feet deep trench to get to the sewer pipes.This team worked straight through and took the time to explain everything to me and my husband. They did a fantastic job. I would highly recommend this company.

Justin was absolutely PHENOMENAL!!! He went above and beyond. I was so impressed, especially since we've had nothing but bad experiences with every contractor thus far during home renovations. He came out to give me an estimate and offered to do some minor plumbing I needed done that same day. Justin also saw I needed some help moving and lifting some things and took it upon himself to take care of it for me. After my experience with him today, I felt no need to seek out any other company or estimates. He was the guy for the job. In fact, I've hired this company (Justin) to do additional work I need done. He was on time friendly, professional, very thorough and explained everything to me and made sure I understood. This is the first review I have ever done on any company and their work. 10 stars if I could! Absolutely fantastic! Highly, Highly recommend!! I can't say enough. Thanks again Justin!!
