Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Charleston

Furnace refusing to start? Reset button keeps tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you frustrated and chilly in Charleston, the Experts at Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help.

Sometimes, you can fix troubles with your oil-burning furnace on your own. 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 wrong. Make sure that it’s switched to “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature shuts down your furnace when it spots 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 things, only press the reset button once. Pressing it too many times could cause fuel oil to build up and cause 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 few drops of electric motor oil on them after disconnecting your furnace.

Other times, you’ll need one of our Expert service technicians. Call Pardee 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 found in the burner chamber
  • Burner runs but does not fire
  • Previously mentioned troubleshooting ideas don’t fix the problem
