Recommendations for Oil fired Heat Service Co. in Nassau County, NY

John1972John1972 Member Posts: 2
Hello,
I am in need of a service company specializing in oil heat in the Nassau County, Long Island, NY area. Specifically I need a Taco 007-F5-7IFC circulator replaced as it is getting stuck from time to time as well as annual service. I will also be looking to replace a John Wood oil fired hot water tank that is nearing the end of it's useful life. Although I am pretty handy and feel I could change out/replace the circulator, do the annual maintenance and replace the water tank myself, I am concerned about not knowing enough about or have the tools to set the combustion/venting/exhaust to want to leave it to a professional. I have seen a couple of recommendations on this site but they appear to deal in steam/gas. Any suggestions on a good reputable company?

    Generally you let the Oil Company supply those services!

    Yes, but I usually just buy COD and have been changing the oil filters myself for the last few years. Up until now the heating system has been working fine.

    That's all fine and good but who checks the safeties, limits, controls, and most importantly, who does the annual combustion test?

    Also who you gonna call at 3 am in February when something goes wrong? Not Ghost Busters.

    You've got the Big Blue/Purple behemoth. The green and white guys with the cute house painted on the trucks, who is owned by the same company that owns the behemoth. Those guys you see in the malls and going door to door. Name rhymes with Romans.
    The Major, Captain, Colonel, or 3 star... Actually I think Star Gas ate them up too.
    As well as numerous full service oil companies in Nassau.
    I can however ask you to NOT sign with the company that rhymes with Burger King.

    You can make some inquiries and see if there are any companies who will provide a service agreement where you can still purchase COD fuel from whomever and the service agreement will give you discounted and priority service with no overtime or holiday rates.
    The company I work for offers such an agreement, as well as full service. But no way am I going to Nassau, or west of the Billy Floyd pkwy for that matter. I'm happy working on the forks thank you very much.
