Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Charleston

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

Sometimes, you can fix troubles with your oil-burning furnace by yourself. There are a few things you can take a look at before contacting us for heating repair.

Common Oil Heating System Problems

  • Furnace won’t start. The thermostat setting may be incorrect. Check that it’s switched to “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature turns off your furnace when it spots a problem. 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 too many times could cause fuel oil to accumulate and cause a fire once the furnace begins running.
  • 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 a problem 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 professional service technicians. Call Pardee Service Experts 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 turns on but does not fire
  • Other troubleshooting ideas don’t fix the problem
