The New York Oil Heating Association (NYOHA) is helping a teacher in the Bronx, New York, use clean-burning Bioheat® fuel as a teaching tool in HVAC training. Peter Gonzalez is teaching the science of Bioheat fuel — as well as math, chemistry, and English — to Bronx Design and Construction Academy juniors this fall.
Tim had asked Bob to go into depth about tuning an oil burner during the last service call. “You said that oil burning equipment requires more attention than any other type of residential heating equipment,” Tim said. “Can you explain why?”
Bob and Tim were on their way to an oil heat service call. It is cold and the owner has no heat. Tim read the service ticket for today and said, “The owner says that the burner won’t burn and makes a sputtering sound for a few minutes and shuts off.”
