    I do indoor air quality assessments, which require me to inspect HVAC systems. I came across an old Williamson Oilsaver--the condensate was draining onto a concrete slab (no floor drain), causing mold to grow on the interior walls of the room. I was curious what you pros would recommend to do? Also, what type of filter do you guys feel would work best? any web page links that would be helpful? I appreciate it.

    Condensate pump the water to outside or plumbing wherever. So the water was just left to accumulate on the basement floor? Wow!

    Oilsaver

    Thanks for the advice--any recommendation on filters, or just a med-high efficiency? How often do you recommend having it serviced? I noticed the efficiency was around 72% the last time it was tested (about 1 year ago). thanks for the help.

    Oil furnace should be serviced annually but a tech who really will service it. Around here, anyway, a good oil tech is murder to find. The Oilsaver needs the flue carefully cleaned or it will plug up. The 1" pleated filters do a good job, keep them from getting too plugged.

    My coworkers do pretty well. Most of our oil is gone but still have a few diehards with it. Only 3 of 8 techs will touch it.
