What to Do If Your Home Loses Heat in New Jersey

If you do experience heat loss this winter, don’t panic. See if you can correct the issue quickly and safely with this checklist:

No-Heat Checklist

  • Fuel Tank: Check the gauge to see if you need a heating oil refill, and if you do, give us a call.
  • Thermostat: Make sure your setting is on HEAT, and the cooling function is not on instead.
  • Switches: Check that all furnace and emergency switches are on.
  • Fuses: The fuse box for the burner is usually near the electric meter. Replace any blown fuses or reset the breaker.
  • Water Level: If you have a steam boiler with a low water cut-off, make sure the water in the boiler gauge is over the water line.
  • Reset Button: If you have an oil heating system, press the RESET button—ONCE ONLY.

If you’ve performed all the above steps and still don’t have heat, call your local energy experts at Woolley Home Solutions right away for assistance. Experiencing a heating emergency? Be sure to contact us by phone: that’s always the fastest way to reach our team.
