If you’ve heard about the cost-saving and environmental benefits of switching to waste oil heating, you’re probably wondering how easy it is to use a waste oil furnace. The start-up process of different makes and models varies.

That’s why we make it simple to generate heat on even the most frigid days. With a burner that has passed the most challenging “cold start” safety tests, our furnaces ensure you won’t be left out in the cold.

Let’s take a look at how easy it is to start a Clean Energy furnace.

8 Simple Steps for Starting a Clean Energy Waste Oil Furnace

  1. Make sure your furnace is installed correctly. If you followed the steps in your owner’s manual to set it up and connect all components; had a qualified electrician connect your furnace to the junction box; filled your tank with oil; and connected your furnace to your air compressor or shop air system, you should be in great shape.
  2. Turn the power on (green light will be lit when it is on).
  3. If you’re powering up the unit after it has been turned off for a while, wait a few minutes for the pre-heater to warm up. The furnace won’t start otherwise.
  4. You may need to prime the pump before starting the furnace if it hasn’t been used recently. Follow the instructions in the owner’s manual for how to do this or watch the instructional video we created.
  5. To start your furnace, turn your wall thermostat to a setting above room temperature to trigger the heater to fire up.
  6. Once the furnace has fired, you can see the flame through the observation port on the unit. Even in a ceiling mount installation, from the ground, you should be able to see a glow through the port.
  7. Follow the instructions in your owner’s manual for adjusting your combustion air intake and compressed air for optimal operation.
  8. Insert a draft gauge into the observation port to verify you have the appropriate amount of draft. You’ll want to check this periodically to make sure it’s adjusted as needed per your manual.

That’s all there is to it! And whenever you have questions, our team and your dealer are here to help.
