I need help. I have an oil burner in my basement for our heating system, and a couple of hours ago I opened the basement door to go do laundry and the whole basement smelled like oil. I called my fiance down, and he told me to go turn the heat up and when I did, the heat kicked on and a puff of smoke came out. I worry about carbon monoxide with our kids in the house, so I called the emergency service, and the technician explained to me that I probably need a new transmitter. He said he will be by tomorrow. I expressed my concerns about CO and he said that there would be smoke and soot all over. Is this true. I cracked a window open in my kids rooms because I am paranoid. Do you think we will be ok until he comes and checks it out?
