Many people do not know that a furnace can “puff back,” until it happens to them. What a "puff back" is, is when there is an explosion from oil vapors that have built up inside of the ignition chamber of an oil-burning furnace. You will know that your furnace has puffed back when you see soot and other debris that has blown into the heating system, and continues into your home. There is a possibility that the furnace can puff back through any vent in your home that is open.

To help prevent puff backs, it is important to perform regular maintenance on oil-burning furnaces. It is recommended that they are cleaned once a year. In addition, always make sure that there are no oil leaks, odd smells or soot in the same room the furnace is in.
