Does turning off my furnace when I don't need heat or hot water conserve oil without damaging my furnace?
I live in northern Vermont and have a oil-fired baseboard heating system. I have a Beckett Heat Manager installed on my furnace and a Vaughn (Energy Star) water heater.
One service person has said that it's ok to turn off the furnace. Another has said that the moisture that might accumulate could harm the furnace and so not to turn it off.
Does the season make a difference? ok in the summer? ok in the winter?
Thanks for any advice you can give.
