10 Signs of a Quality Waste Oil Furnace

If you’ve been considering switching to waste oil heating to turn your used petroleum products into free heat for your building, you’re likely wondering: How can I recognize that a waste oil furnace has exceptional quality?

At Clean Energy Heating Systems, we think that’s an extremely important question to ask early in the process of looking for a waste oil heater.

Not all waste oil furnaces offer the same value. Therefore, we encourage you to explore your options so you can make the optimal educated decision about which brand and model will serve your needs best.

So, what should you look for in a waste oil furnace? Below is a guide to help you know what to consider:

  1. Cost savings over traditional heating technology
    Ask the equipment manufacturer or distributor to help you realistically calculate how much your waste oil furnace will save you and what return on investment (ROI) you can expect. Although waste oil heating is a wonderful investment for many businesses, it isn’t the right choice for every company. The math needs to work out!
  2. Durable components that will stand the test of time
    Durability matters when investing in a furnace. A waste oil furnace with stainless steel components will last for the long haul and give you the savings you deserve year after year.
  3. High velocity, air swept heat exchanger for efficient heat distribution
    This is critical for ensuring you’re getting the most bang for your buck  while heating your facility most effectively.
  4. Easy to clean
    Don’t get stuck doing more work than necessary to keep your furnace performing at its best. Furnaces with features like the over-center latches make cleaning easier and will help you maintain your equipment more efficiently, requiring less time!.
  5. Vertical flue tubes
    They help prevent ash from building up and accumulating where it’s hard to reach.
  6. Mounting options to suit your environment’s needs
    You shouldn’t have to settle for a “one-size-fits-all” design. Look for a furnace that gives you choices, such as tank, wall, and ceiling mounting options – and also a furnace that allows for the chimney to be placed on either the left or right side.
  7. No need for frequent cleaning
    It’s a hassle to have to clean a waste oil furnace constantly. Find one that, when properly maintained, can go 1,000-plus hours between cleanings.
  8. EPA-approved design
    Make sure the furnace you’re interested in buying meets all EPA regulations and requirements so that it enables you to dispose of your waste oil in an environmentally friendly and lawful way.
  9. Made in the USA
    This not only helps ensure you’re getting a high-quality furnace, but also one from a manufacturer that supports jobs right here in the United States of America.
  10. Versatility
    The more types of used oil your waste oil furnace can safely convert to heat for your building, the better! Look for a furnace that can burn used hydraulic oil, used crankcase oil, used automatic transmission fluid, #2 fuel oil or diesel fuel, and most synthetic oils.
