Expert Oil Furnace Repair in Hilton Head Island

Furnace refusing to start? Reset button continuously tripping? If your fuel oil furnace is leaving you frustrated and cold in Hilton Head Island, the Experts at Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can help.

Sometimes, you can repair troubles with your oil-burning furnace on your own. There are several 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. Ensure that it’s on “auto” and “heat.”
  • Reset button keeps tripping. This safety feature stops your furnace when it discovers 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 working.
  • 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 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 shutting down your furnace.

Other times, you’ll need one of our professional service technicians. Call Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning 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 runs but does not fire
  • Alternative troubleshooting suggestions don’t fix the problem
