How hard is it to learn furnace maintenance?
We're tired of taking a day off so someone can come out to do what seems to be mainly vacuuming the inside of the furnace for about $100.

2. You mean mean-spirited appliance kicking?
I'll walk you through it for twenty bucks.

3. We have a book on minor home repair and maintenance
and that's in it. There's a bit more than vacuuming but my husband read about it and did it in less than half an hour.

5. I just scheduled a cleaning for $125.
I have an oil furnace.
Last year I changed the filter myself, but they ended up doing that when they came to service it.
They put in a new burner tip and clean it. I'm wndering if they make it burn more fuel (since they work with the fuel company?
I'd rather not take a chance with combustable devices.

7. It doesn't look that difficult, does it?
Surely we can save both money and aggravation by learning how to do it ourselves.
