Although many Long Island homeowners would like to believe that they will never have to make repairs to their oil burners, even the best of oil burners will have to have some repairs at some point in time. There are mechanical parts in the system, and mechanical parts are not infallible.
Making repairs to your burner is usually a lot less money than replacing the entire burner. Depending on each burner’s warrantees, you may have some of these parts that will be covered for replacement. If you have a burner service contract with a reputable Long Island burner service company, some parts and labor may even be covered.
One other important thing to consider: an oil burner with yearly maintenance and up-keep will save you money in the long run. Routine maintenance keeps your system running efficiently and can extend the life of the burner. Many of our Long Island clients have found this to be very true.
