Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Columbus

Furnace won’t start? Reset button keeps tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you irritated and cold in Columbus, the Experts at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help.

Sometimes, you can take care of problems with your oil-burning furnace on your own. There are several things you can try before contacting us for heating repair.

Common Oil Heating System Problems

  • Furnace won’t start. The thermostat setting may be too low. Check that it’s switched to “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature shuts down your furnace when it discovers trouble. Make sure there’s fuel in the oil tank, the valves are open and the chimney is unobstructed. Once you’ve checked those locations, only press the reset button once. Pressing it too many times could cause fuel oil to become concentrated and spark a fire once the furnace begins working.
  • 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 an issue with the belt or blower motor. If these components have oiling ports, put a couple of electric motor oil on them after shutting down your furnace.

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

  • Pressing 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 signals there’s air in the fuel lines
  • Oil lines are leaking
  • Soot can be found in the burner chamber
  • Burner works but does not fire
  • Previously mentioned troubleshooting ideas don’t fix the problem
