Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Columbia

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

Sometimes, you can take care of issues with your oil-burning furnace by yourself. There are a few things you can try before calling us for heating repair.

Common Oil Heating System Problems

  • Furnace won’t start. The thermostat setting may be incorrect. Make sure that it’s on “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature turns off your furnace when it discovers trouble. Make sure there’s fuel in the oil tank, the valves are open and the chimney is clear. Once you’ve checked those things, only press the reset button once. Pressing it too many times could cause fuel oil to build up and start a fire once the furnace begins heating.
  • Inadequate heat. The oil or air filters could be congested 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 couple of electric motor oil on them after disconnecting your furnace.

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

  • Using 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 observed in the burner chamber
  • Burner works but does not fire
  • Alternative troubleshooting tips don’t fix the problem
