    My husband and I just purchased a home. The furnace is a little over 10 years old and uses kerosene from an outside tank. It runs fine, but when it is shutting down from heating, there is a ticking sound. Can someone tell us what may be causing this? Is it fixable, and how costly it may be to repair?

    Yes, but your best option would to be to contact a trained, competent professional to diagnose and repair the unit to insure a safe & efficient running system for you and your loved ones.

    Is it fixable
    Anything is repairable, it's whether it's economically feasible to do so.

    How costly it may be to repair?
    The site rules prohibit this question from being answered.

    (No pricing, due to site rules )

    If it's an older unit, it maybe the metal cooling down. Some of these old heat exchanger are pretty heavy, and the metal expans when it heats and cools.. so the ticking noise could be that.. Really nothing you can do about it.

    This forced air or jsut a room heater?
