Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Albany

Furnace balking at starting? Reset button continuously tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you irritated and freezing in Albany, the Experts at D.A. Bennett Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help.

Sometimes, you can repair troubles with your oil-burning furnace by yourself. 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 turns off your furnace when it spots trouble. Make sure there’s fuel in the oil tank, the valves are open and the chimney is free of blockages. Once you’ve checked those things, only press the reset button once. Pressing it several times could cause fuel oil to accumulate and cause 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 a problem with the belt or blower motor. If these components have oiling ports, put a couple of electric motor oil on them after shutting down your furnace.

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

  • Pressing 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 turns on but does not fire
  • Other troubleshooting ideas don’t fix the problem
