Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Houston

Furnace won’t start? Reset button continually tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you frustrated and cold in Houston, the Experts at Church Services can help.

Sometimes, you can fix issues with your oil-burning furnace alone. There are a few things you can take a look at before contacting us for heating repair.

Common Oil Heating System Problems

  • Furnace won’t start. The thermostat setting may be too low. Check that it’s switched to “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 free of blockages. Once you’ve checked those locations, only press the reset button once. Pressing it too many times could cause fuel oil to become concentrated and spark 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 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 professional service technicians. Call Church Services 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 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
  • Previously mentioned troubleshooting ideas don’t fix the problem
