I thought I could repair my heating system on my own

The cold wintertime was approaching, but I was not ready because my heating and A/C plan was not really working correctly.

My heating and A/C plan had stopped heating, and it was starting to stink like actual smoke; it had been a while since I cleaned my oil furnace. The oil furnace had a defective heat exchanger, and the fuel valve control was leaking fuel into the home. It was operating inefficiently, and it was wasting a lot of fuel in the process. Since I did not have enough cash to contact an actual heating and A/C professional, I decided to service it since I had some proficiency concerning heating. The first thing I noticed is that the oil furnace was not producing enough heat and that its filter was blocked. Since at that time, I did not have enough cash to replace the filter, I cleaned it, hoping that it would work. The safety switch at the oil furnace door was really old, and it also needed to be replaced. But what I did was, I turned the power off and wired the safety switch officially. The other thing that I needed to do was to clean the oil furnace. The basement was clustered with all sorts of unwanted particles that made their way into the oil furnace that could not work officially. I checked the burners to ensure that they were free from debris as well. I tried to use a vacuum cleaner hose to clean the burners. I walked through the entire house, checking the vents to ensure that nothing was blocking any of them. I was hopeful that the oil furnace would function correctly this time, however unluckily, it did not. I had no other choice however to contact a heating and A/C professional.
