I have an oil/hot air furnace. I have a service agreement with my local oil
company where they cover
very minor repairs. Well, the repairman diagnosed a water leak coming from my
heating coil. He
mentioned that I can probably get it replaced cheaper from a local plumber or
However, I called my local plumbing supply store and they said that chaning a
heating coil for an
oil burner is not a DIY project?
I only have basic plumbing and electric skills. I can weld copper pipes on my
pool heater and can
replace PVC plumbing.
Are there any generic instructions for changing the heating coil, so I can see
what I am getting
into. If this is not a DIY project can you please let me know?
The oil furnace is made by Weil-McLain and the heating coil is encolsed in a
metal conainer that is
22 inches wide and 17 inche depth.
