What is a soot puffback?

A puffback is an explosion from inside the burner chamber of oil fired furnaces or water heaters. This explosion causes soot and smoke to blast out from the heating system and can travel through the ductwork and affect many areas of your home. It is caused by soot building up and then blocking the system. Puffbacks can be dangerous and can cause damage to your heating system and property. A puffback can create a film that will cover walls, windows, ceilings, carpet, furniture, and more.
