Furnace Puff Back Restoration
What is a Puff Back?
Most people have never heard of a puff back. A puff back occurs when an oil burner backfires, sending soot throughout your home or business. It can happen all at once (like a balloon popping) or more gradually (as if someone was holding the end of a balloon and letting the air seep out slowly).
Recognizing Puff Backs
It is usually easy to tell when a puff back has occurred. Soot covers all areas of the home or business and may range from light to very heavy. Sometimes the disbursement of soot is so light and fine it appears to be ordinary dust. This “dust” however reappears hours after being cleaned. There is often a strong odor of oil accompanying a puff back. If you question whether or not you have soot damage, call us for thorough inspection.
Preventing Puff Backs
The best defense against a puff back is to have your oil burner inspected annually and kept in good repair. This is no guarantee against having a puff back, but it greatly reduces your risk. Keep debris, animal hair, or anything that could interfere with proper functioning away from your oil burner.
