Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Austin

Furnace won’t start? Reset button continually tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you irritated and chilly in Austin, the Experts at Strand Brothers Service Experts can help.

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

Common Oil Heating System Problems

  • Furnace won’t start. The thermostat setting may be wrong. Ensure that it’s switched to “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature shuts down your furnace when it spots 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 several times could cause fuel oil to become concentrated and start 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 a problem with the belt or blower motor. If these components have oiling ports, put a couple of electric motor oil on them after completely turning off your furnace.

Other times, you’ll need one of our Expert service technicians. Call Strand Brothers Service Experts 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
  • Previously mentioned troubleshooting ideas don’t fix the problem
