Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Raleigh

Furnace balking at starting? Reset button continuously tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you frustrated and chilly in Raleigh, the Experts at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help.

Sometimes, you can take care of troubles with your oil-burning furnace alone. There are a few things you can try before getting in touch with us for heating repair.

Common Oil Heating System Problems

  • Furnace won’t start. The thermostat setting may be incorrect. Ensure that it’s switched to “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature turns off your furnace when it spots an issue. Make sure there’s fuel in the oil tank, the valves are open and the chimney is unobstructed. Once you’ve checked those things, only press the reset button once. Pressing it several times could cause fuel oil to become concentrated and start a fire once the furnace begins heating.
  • Inadequate heat. The oil or air filters could be clogged and need to be cleaned or replaced.
  • Excess noise. If you hear clattering, tighten access panels. Squealing means there’s problems with the belt or blower motor. If these components have oiling ports, put a little bit of electric motor oil on them after disconnecting your furnace.

Other times, you’ll need one of our specialist service technicians. Call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for oil furnace repair service when:

  • Pushing the reset button doesn’t start the furnace, even when there’s fuel in the tank and valves are open
  • You hear knocking sounds, which likely means there’s air in the fuel lines
  • Oil lines are leaking
  • Soot can be seen in the burner chamber
  • Burner works but does not fire
  • Alternative troubleshooting tips don’t fix the problem
