My oil furnace caught on fire, although I have no idea why.
I am so aggravated that my furnace caught on fire.
I have never even heard of something like that. I was not home when this happened, when I usually leave on vacation, I make sure that the furnace is running to keep my home warm! Although I will not set the temperature control to the same temperature that I usually keep the house at, I set it to a lower temperature. Keeping your oil furnace running while you are gone is a nice way to ensure that your house is safe from the frosty weather. While drastically awful things are not likely to happen in only the span of a week, your water pipes are especially susceptible to issues without heat. You would hate to be gone on vacation during the winter just to find out that your water pipes were frozen when you got back. Your furnace can ensure that this does not happen, something worse than frozen pipes happened this time during gone. The oil furnace was running, but some parts within the furnace malfunctioned in a way that I did not know was possible. I had the furnace checked recently, and the heating and air conditioning professional did not warn me about any potential problems with the oil furnace, and once the spark ignited inside the oil furnace, it was only a matter of time because something else caught on fire, and the oil furnace burnt my house to the ground. Imagine coming home to rubble. Thankfully, my home was insured, although I still lost a lot of things that cannot be replaced
