Oil System Heat Production 

oil heat systemAs with most heating systems, when a thermostat senses that the current room temperature has dropped below the temperature it has been set to, it signals your oil heat system to engage the burner and begin heat production. A pump sends heating oil to the burner where an injector sprays a mixture of fuel and air, which ignites inside the combustion chamber. The resultant flame heats air, water, or both, which is then circulated, warming your home or building.

Oil System Heat Distribution

In hot water systems, the oil flame heats the water in a boiler and circulates it either as a liquid or as steam. The water or steam travels throughout the building in pipes, which distribute heat through baseboards and/or radiators.

In a warm air system, the furnace heats air rather than water, and a blower distributes the heated air through a series of ducts to vents in the floor and walls. Cooling air returns to the furnace via return ducts, and the process is repeated.
