I had a new oil-burning boiler installed on 7/8/15. I’d smell fumes from the old one every once in awhile but I am smelling them way too often with this new one. The oil company that installed the boiler has been out here and adjusted things several times. The chimney was cleaned before the installation.
There were some branches very close to the chimney but those were cut way back and I shouldn’t think they would be the cause for all the fumes I am smelling. The oil company is perplexed. One theory they offer is that atmospheric conditions are such that the fumes don’t go up sometimes. Some people in the companey think the chimney is tall enough but others think it should be taller than the peak of the roof.
(I would attach a pic, a 17kb jpg, but your site doesn't think it is a valid image file...)
Why is this happening? Who can fix this?
Thanks for any help.
