Our People Deliver The Difference


Using an oil furnace as the primary heat source in your home is a great way to achieve enhanced energy efficiency. Not only that, but modern oil furnaces feature more eco-friendly fuel sources than older system models.

If your Greenville County home relies on an oil furnace for heat, Waldrop Plumbing, Heating, and Air offers the comprehensive oil furnace services you need to achieve optimum comfort. Our Greenville furnace technicians are here to help 24 hours a day, seven days a week, delivering the superior furnace service solutions that Greenville families deserve.

How Often Should an Oil Furnace Be Serviced?

Service your oil furnace at least once a year at the beginning of the cool weather season. As your furnace ages, increase your service to twice a year — once in the fall and once in the spring.  When you need a knowledgeable HVAC technician to service your oil furnace, look to the experts at Waldrop to get the job done right.

How Long Should an Oil-Burning Furnace Last?

Oil-burning furnaces last about 20 to 25 years. They offer many benefits, including quick and even heat disbursement and less dry air than electric heat sources. Homeowners also have greater peace of mind knowing they have direct access to their fuel supply when other sources like propane and natural gas aren’t available.

An oil furnace still needs maintenance. Handle oil furnace repairs quickly to ensure the full-service life of your furnace and stay warm during the damp Greenville winters.


The following are just some of the signs that your oil furnace needs repair fast:

Oil Furnace FAQs

Most oil furnaces can last between 20 and 25 years, depending on how well you adhere to a routine maintenance schedule. You may need to replace your furnace sooner if:

  • You’ve experienced an increased need for repair requests in recent years/months
  • You’ve had a sudden rise in heating expenses despite consistent usage behavior
  • The cost to repair your furnace is 50% or more than the cost it would be to replace it
Oil furnaces require annual heating maintenance just like any other heating equipment you may have installed in your home. Our heating specialists recommend scheduling an oil furnace tune-up at least once before each heating season (typically around September).
Depending on whether your oil tank is above or below ground, you can check the volume of fuel left in your system by:
  • Above-ground tanks: There is likely a tank gauge that can tell you the estimated fuel volume in the tank.
  • Below-ground tanks: You can place a measuring stick or tape measure into the tank, using the number in inches to determine the number of gallons left in the tank.

Most manufacturers provide a recommended oil specification for the furnaces they produce. Usually, residential oil furnaces use a Number 2 Diesel; however, your system may rely on a different type of oil depending on the make and model.

Our team can help you determine the best oil to use for your furnace.
