PUFF BACKS ~ More MESSY than an Untrained Dragon!
A PUFF BACK occurs when an oil burner doesn't immediately ignite! This causes the oil to build up before ignition. Similar to the backfiring of a car.
PUFF BACKS can propel soot through the furnace exhaust system and into your home!
If you have forced hot air, the soot will travel through your heating system and into your living space!
It's amazing how much area soot can cover! In some cases excess soot can force you out of your home!
PUFF BACK soot may appear to be just a black powder-like substance, but it is actually a mixture of oil! PUFF BACK soot is STICKY and VERY MESSY! ... PUFF BACK soot is also EXTREMELY DIFFICULT to remove!
