Oil Furnaces

24/HR EMERGENCY SERVICE

With the sometimes harsh winters of Maryland, it is important to have a reliable and well maintained residential boiler.  For quality boiler repair, maintenance, replacement, and installation look no further than W.L. Staton.  Contact us today for more information on all of your boiler needs.

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.

I had several leaks resulting in major damage in my home over the 4th of July holiday. I had on two service technicians come out on two separate occasions Joe Fanning and Joe Thumel, both technicians were experienced, courteous and professional. They got the job done in a timely fashion. I would highly recommend them to my family and friends should they need plumbing services.

Had the water line replaced from the meter to my house. The guys did a great job. Had a large Oak that was in the way and they used a method to prevent root damage which prevented the tree from possibly dying. They ran into some unforseen obstacles that extended the job but held to there original quote. Exspecially liked there text message system that told me they were on there way and showed up when they said they would be there. Very happy with there services!
