Default oil burner lined chiminey cleaning

How often should a stainless-steel lined chimney for an oil burner be cleaned?

CLamb, adding your location to profile would help. Some places where furnace gets lots of use need annual inspection, a spring or summer inspection may be cheaper and easier to schedule than in busy heating season. The furnace itself should be included in inspection.

Other, warmer, places recommended inspection may be every two, three years. It depends on how much hot, acidic gas is going up flue, general condition of flue and furnace, how effectivly it burns oil, and even chemical composition of oil used.
