Cold Weather Is On Its Way

COLD weather is on its way.  Please find below a couple of tips that can help keep your Clean Burn running properly during this cold snap.
  • Monitor the oil supply in your tank.  Make sure you have sufficient good oil.  With this extremely cold weather, you will use oil at a much faster rate.  Make sure there is plenty of oil in the tank to last over night.  Make sure your oil is not contaminated with antifreeze, water or sludge.  Please see the list below for approved oils.

          Crank case oil
          Transmission Fluid
          New Fuel Oil # 2, #4, and #5
          Synthetic Used oil
          Hydraulic Fluid (up to 90 Weight)
          Diesel Oil and Diesel Fuel (New or Used)
  • Make sure your air compressor is in a warm environment .   Make sure there is no water in your air compressor or the air compressor line.  Water in the air compressor could freeze and cause your air compressor not to work.  Your furnace will not operate without air coming from your air compressor.
