I have an oil fired hot water baseboard heating system which is producing a layer of soot upstairs which seems to attract to plastic. It gets on the coffee maker and toilet lids and placemats. The furnace was just cleaned . They are coming through the area with natural gas pipeline and the furnace is 20 years old. I was not thinking of switching to gas but this is getting us down. Looking for ideas. I prefer to stay with oil.

If it was cleaned within a month,.CALL EM BACK!!! It's warranty work. Make sure that it was taken apart and cleaned. Oil combustion has to be checked after cleaning or the same problem will occure again. Ask the for the combustion test results and get back to me. If the ask you what that is?.......call a reliable contractor and again get back to me.

Good luck.
