Oil Furnace Installation & Replacement in the Charlottesville Area

Oil furnaces can often last for 15 to 20 years if properly cared for, but once something major like the heat exchanger fails or the system becomes unreliable, it may be time to consider an oil furnace replacement.

Our NATE-certified technicians can provide furnace installation and replacement anywhere in Charlottesville, and we feature top-quality equipment, as well as financing options on approved credit to make the process as easy as possible,

Installing an oil furnace involves:

  • Shutting off the fuel supply
  • Removing the old furnace
  • Installing the new unit
  • Connecting all the ductwork and fuel lines
  • Testing the system

Only a professional should install an oil furnace because not only is there a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning if it’s not vented properly, but because the fuel is stored on-site, there is a risk of fire if any fuel lines, filters, or valves are incorrectly installed.

Call Albemarle Heating & Air at 434-293-4556 to request oil furnace installation in the Charlottesville area.

Oil Furnace Maintenance

If you would like to avoid issues like fuel clogs, burner malfunctions, poor air quality, or breakdowns, it’s important to schedule routine heating maintenance. We recommend scheduling preventative service at least once a year, preferably in the fall, so that you know your furnace is ready for the winter ahead.

Your oil furnace maintenance visit will typically include tasks like:

  • Replacing the air filter and fuel filter
  • Cleaning the burners
  • Testing the thermostat, fan limiter, and igniter
  • Inspecting the heat exchanger and flue
  • Inspecting wiring and terminals
  • Cleaning the blower fan and housing

Consider joining our Health, Safety & Comfort Club to stay up-to-date with your oil furnace maintenance. Our maintenance plan features one heating and one cooling tune-up annually, plus a 20% discount on repair parts and labor, same-day priority service, and more.

Frequently Asked Questions

An oil furnace burns oil to heat the air in your home. The air passes through a heat exchanger so that combustion gases are not mixed in with the air supply, and a blower fan pushes the heated air through a system of ductwork to deliver the air throughout your home.

Above-ground fuel tanks and some belowground tanks will have a fuel gauge to indicate the amount of fuel remaining, but if no gauge is present, a clean measuring stick can be dipped into the tank to determine the fuel level.

Running out of fuel will not damage the furnace, but you may need to call an HVAC technician to change the fuel filter and bleed air from the fuel lines if the tank was run completely dry.
