If your heat won’t turn on or blow warm air, you may need to call a professional for service, but first, check out Needham Oil Complete Heating & Cooling troubleshooting guide for solutions you can try at home. We are pleased to provide ways in which you can save time and money by taking your own measures to ensure that your systems are working properly.
You don’t need to be a heating expert to flip a switch on your circuit breaker or check your fuel gauge. However, different styles of heating systems may have varying troubleshooting steps. You’ll need to know whether you use heating oil, or have a gas-powered system, as well as whether your heater is a furnace or boiler. If you have a boiler, it can help to know if it’s a steam boiler, or one powered by hot water.
An air filter clogged with debris will cause the system to overheat and shut down.
Much like a computer or smartphone, sometimes your heating system may need a reboot if you can’t get it going as it should. Try this: Press and hold the RESET button on the burner for 3 seconds. Did the heat come on?
If your system does not start after you push the reset button, DO NOT PUSH IT AGAIN. Pushing this button more than once can cause your heating system to “Flood.” Too much oil will get pumped into the combustion chamber, resulting in a lengthy and costly repair.
If the troubleshooting steps above don’t get your heater going again, it’s time to call in the professionals who can get you COMPLETELY squared away.
