Furnace inspections a must under new oil heat regulations

Comprehensive inspections are required for any oil fired appliance in your home. This includes your furnace, oil fired hot water tank, oil fired fire place ,space heater or boilers. Also a oil tank inspection has to be completed.

These inspections are now required under new regulations from Ontario’s Technical Standards and Safety Authority (TSSA). The new regulations will ensure that heating with oil remains one of the safest and most dependable home heating options. The dead line for completion of the comprehensive inspections was May 1,2006

This inspection is valid for 10 years after completion
