Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Shreveport

Furnace won’t start? Reset button continuously tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you irritated and freezing in Shreveport, the Experts at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help.

Sometimes, you can repair issues 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 incorrect. Make sure that it’s on “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature shuts down your furnace when it discovers an issue. Make sure there’s fuel in the oil tank, the valves are open and the chimney is clear. Once you’ve checked those things, 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 disconnecting your furnace.

Other times, you’ll need one of our professional service technicians. Call 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 seen in the burner chamber
  • Burner turns on but does not fire
  • Previously mentioned troubleshooting tips don’t fix the problem
