We have been having issues with our forced air oil furnace. I am waiting to hear from the repair company as I type this, whether they will make it today or tomorrow. In October, we had the yearly maintenance done with full cleaning, replaced the nozzle, adjusted electrodes and changed all filters. About 2 weeks later, the furnace died early morning. We had a service call, which we disocvered it was not the furnace but rather the tank out-take area was plugged with slugde, not letting the fuel get to the furnace. He ran a new line out the top of the fuel oil tank, as we didn't want to replace the tank (we are moving in the spring). The furnace has been working great, sounds better than it has since we've lived here. Every once in a while, though, I thought I would catch a whiff of burned fuel oil, but it was so fleeting I couldn't tell. Yesterday, it became more apparent. It was coming from the vents. It only emits the smell after the burner kicks off while the blower is still running. The repair company said something may not be set correctly or it may be a cracked heating exchanger and advised I stop using the furnace until they check it, which I have done. If it is the heat exchanger, we do not want to replace the furnace. We are moving from here in the spring, as our house will be done. We currently live in an old mobile home that we don't plan on selling...we plan to have it "torn down" as it is worth nothing. It would need moved from its current location, and it probably wouldn't be able withstand that. I'm at a loss as to what I should do. We obviously need heat but will not use a furnace with a cracked heat exchanger. We live in Pennsylvania and the winters can get quite cold. Our mobile home is 14 x 70, 2 bedrooms (each at the opposite ends of the trailer), 2 hallways (leading from the bedrooms), 1 bathroom that opens into main bedroom and hallway; the kitchen, living room and living room extension (had been a third bedroom but wall was taken down) all connect together in a fairly open space. Does anyone have any suggestions how we could heat our home for this one winter? Or should we "throw away" money on a new furnace? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
