Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Hillsborough

Furnace refusing to start? Reset button keeps tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you frustrated and cold in Hillsborough, the Experts at Fras-Air/General Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help.

Sometimes, you can repair problems with your oil-burning furnace on your own. There are several things you can check before calling us for heating repair.

Common Oil Heating System Problems

  • Furnace won’t start. The thermostat setting may be incorrect. Ensure that it’s set to “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature stops your furnace when it detects an issue. Make sure there’s fuel in the oil tank, the valves are open and the chimney is clear. Once you’ve checked those areas, only press the reset button once. Pressing it several 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 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 few drops of electric motor oil on them after completely turning off your furnace.

Other times, you’ll need one of our Expert service technicians. Call Fras-Air/General 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 runs but does not fire
  • Previously mentioned troubleshooting suggestions don’t fix the problem
