Question by moosederchi: A question about forced-air heating?
We have forced-air heating and central air conditioning. We use oil to run the heater. Will anything bad happen to the heating system if we don’t use it throughout the winter and instead use our fireplace and two electric heaters to heat the home since we can’t afford the oil?
Answer by Corky R
Probably not. I’d imagine there are plenty of people that shut their homes up for the winter, that have oil heat and go to Florida, or Texas, or S. Carolina, anywhere that’s warm. As long as it’s just setting there dormant there will be no wear and tear on anything, and with the fuel oil in it there will be plenty of lubrication for the gun assembly. Shouldn’t hurt it at all I would think.
