How do you know if your oil burner needs a repair or not? Here are the few reasons why you may need an oil burner service or repair in Suffolk County. Keep in mind these are the most common scenarios, there might be other reasons too when your oil burner may need repair.
Thermostat can sometimes need a repairs because of number of things like faulty wirings, blown fuse or false readings. Repairing a thermostat can be quite expensive. If you feel that your thermostat is not working well then you need to find a oil burner repair technician and get it repaired as soon as possible. The best thing to do however is do a regular checkups of all the parts of the oil burner so you don’t have to repair it as often.
Loud furnace and noises
Loud furnace is another indicator that your oil burner is not in great condition and needs some servicing. When the furnace makes unusual or loud noises, make sure you get it repaired as soon as possible. Other abnormal noises include squeaking, rumbling, and rattles. Try some basic troubleshooting and get it serviced by a professional if it doesn’t work as expected.
Wear and tear
From the outside, your oil burner may look in great condition, but wear and tear of the oil furnace can seriously damage it. This is not just the case with oil burners but almost every modern device. The only thing you can do to prevent wear and tear of your oil furnace is regular maintenance. It is also a good idea to check for pre existing wear and tear and get it repaired soon. This will increase the life of your device and help them last longer.
Dirty filters are not the top in my list but they still should not be ignored. If your furnace filter is dirty, it has to work a lot harder which means it will run inefficiently and will consume a lot more electricity while delivering a poor output. Sadly, this is the most often ignored point by furnace owners so there is a good chance that the filters on your furnace are dirty and need to be cleaned or even replaced. This is one of the most common reasons for oil furnace repairs. My recommendation is to clean your filters every month or two months or outright replace them with new ones. It does not cost much to do that.
Lack of maintenance
Finally, lack of maintainence is one of the major reasons why oil furnace needs to be repaired. Basic maintenance of an oil furnace is not a difficult thing. It includes regularly monitoring the usage and changing the filters, checking for leaks every now and then and hiring a professional maintenance service every few months. If you do these things, the chances of your device needing repairs will go down dramatically while its life will increase.
