Expert Oil Furnace Repair in West Chester

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

Sometimes, you can take care of issues with your oil-burning furnace on your own. There are a few things you can take a look at 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 a problem. 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 areas, only press the reset button once. Pressing it multiple 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 problems with the belt or blower motor. If these components have oiling ports, put a little bit of electric motor oil on them after completely turning off your furnace.

Other times, you’ll need one of our professional service technicians. Call Wesley Wood 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 works but does not fire
  • Other troubleshooting suggestions don’t fix the problem
