Have your heating oil burner cleaned out. Our service technicians will clean your burner, replace the filter, inspect the oil tank, and perform an efficiency test on your heating oil system.
Also make sure your heating oil fill pipe has a cap on it. Most heating oil fill pipes in Philadelphia homes are located at the front of the house. Having a cap on your fill pipe will assure rain water, leaves, or trash will not go into your oil tank. If your heating oil fill pipe does not have a cap we can install one for you.
