Common Oil Furnace Problems
Problem: No heat
Potential Causes/Solutions: If you have a digital thermostat, check to make sure the visual display is functioning because if it isn’t you may be able to resolve your issue by simply replacing the battery. Also make sure the device is set to “heat” and that all other settings appear to be correct.
Problem: Burner not functioning
Potential Causes/Solutions: This could be happening for a number of reasons, including an electrical issue, a faulty blower or motor, a plugged line, a pump problem, or an igniter complication. These are just a few issues that our technicians might diagnose when inspecting a faulty oil furnace. Additional steps you can take include checking your circuit breaker and locating the reset switch (on most systems it looks like a light switch mounted on a red plate) and turning it off and back on.
Problem: Damaged heat exchanger
Explanation: The heat exchanger is a critical component of your oil furnace that transfers heat from burning fuel within your system into the air from your home, while keeping the gases created during combustion separate from the air you breathe. When it becomes damaged it can not only affect the system’s ability to keep you warm, it can also increase the risk of exposure to carbon monoxide. There are many different causes of heat exchanger malfunction or failure. Our highly trained technicians are experienced and well-equipped to quickly diagnose the problem and clearly spell out your options.
