Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Indianapolis

Furnace won’t start? Reset button keeps tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you annoyed and cold in Indianapolis, the Experts at Broad Ripple Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help.

Sometimes, you can fix problems with your oil-burning furnace alone. There are a few things you can check before getting in touch with us for heating repair.

Common Oil Heating System Problems

  • Furnace won’t start. The thermostat setting may be incorrect. Check that it’s on “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature turns off 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 things, only press the reset button once. Pressing it multiple times could cause fuel oil to become concentrated and start a fire once the furnace begins working.
  • 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 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 Broad Ripple Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning for oil furnace repair service when:

  • Using 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 indicates there’s air in the fuel lines
  • Oil lines are leaking
  • Soot can be observed in the burner chamber
  • Burner turns on but does not fire
  • Alternative troubleshooting ideas don’t fix the problem
