6 Clues You Might Experience A Puffback

Combustion Chamber Leak

A puffback can happen when there’s a leak near the chamber. That access point is permitting fuel to build up, making it easier for a potential explosion.

Chimney or Exhaust Clogs

When either get clogged, combustion gases will build up and not correctly vent from the furnace. That irregular internal pressure eventually causes a puffback.

Cracked Heat Exchanger

With a damaged heat exchanger, there is a potential for a flame rollout. That is another symptom that prevents the proper venting of combustion gases.

Repeating Resets

Constantly resetting a furnace manually will build up unburned fuel in the chamber. When the system finally does ignite, it increases the chance of a puffback.

Fuel Nozzle Damage

When an oil fuel nozzle gets damaged, the fuel stream gets disrupted. Erratic fuel starves the burners from igniting properly and forces the excess oil to build up.

Burner Misfire

Whenever a burner gets clogged, here again, excess fuel builds up in the combustion chamber. The debris that jammed the burner causes the misfire and a puffback.

How To Avoid A Puffback and An Explosive Soot Mess

Inspecting and diagnosing a furnace begins with turning the system completely off. Doing so avoids any dangerous outcomes and the soot mess it may leave behind. Our Jackson Comfort Services team takes multiple steps to determine if a puffback did occur or a soot explosion. What they uncover will point to the root cause of the incident. Here is one example of diagnostic steps our team may use:

  • Inspect for any fuel leaks near the combustion chamber.
  • Check for clogs in the exhaust and flue.
  • Examine the burner assembly and oil fuel nozzle for damage.
  • Perform a “candle check” of the heat exchanger.

Should the puffback or soot mess ruin your furnace or boiler, and needs replacing Jackson Comfort Services installs the highest quality heating equipment. For a furnace and boiler company, you can trust in Independence, Ohio, call Jackson Comfort today for a worry-free onsite consultation.

Wow great job overall. Very professional with a great system for contacting you with when the technician is arriving. Brian was fantastic quick and went over everything before he did it. Punctual, thorough and job was done perfectly. AC unit which I neglected was running like a new system and not pricey at all.

It was a pleasure having Matt service our equipment. He was on time and explained everything he did. He took care to protect our hardwood floors while he worked. Jackson Comfort has been taking care of our unit for over 15 years. Thank you to everyone at Jackson and especially Matt for such great service.

Been using Jackson for 10 years. Always on time, friendly and not pushy. They use modern technology to confirm appointments and send reminders (email and text). I also like that I received a color image of the service tech via text when he was en route to our home. That way I know it is actually him.
