Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Pierre

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

Sometimes, you can take care of issues with your oil-burning furnace by yourself. 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 wrong. Ensure that it’s set to “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature stops your furnace when it detects trouble. Make sure there’s fuel in the oil tank, the valves are open and the chimney is unobstructed. Once you’ve checked those areas, only press the reset button once. Pressing it too many times could cause fuel oil to become concentrated and cause 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 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 Peitz 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
  • Alternative troubleshooting tips don’t fix the problem
