Some of the most common solutions include:
Burner Repair: No pilot light could be due to a blocked flue, faulty control board, or improper limit control. A dirty flame sensor or a clogged drain are the most common causes for units that will not stay lit. Our technicians will first clean and then adjust as necessary to get the pilot light burning strong.
Motor Replacement: If you hear sounds from the motor, it may be an indicator that it’s about to fail. We can replace the motor to prevent the entire furnace from breaking down.
Air Filter: Problems with the blower are often linked back to the air filter. Our technicians can replace the air filter, or the switch, if necessary. While a heating system can be complex, most solutions have simple fixes. Due to the complex nature of the unit itself, and the components involved, even a simple furnace repair should always be handled by a professional. Although it may be tempting to repair your furnace yourself, you might end up costing yourself more (and voiding your warranty) in the long run.
Average Repair Cost for Your Home Heating System
Unexpected furnace repairs rarely fit in the monthly budget. Some fixes are simple and inexpensive, while others can reach into hundreds or thousands of dollars. The main difference in the cost of repairs is due to the type of system you have.
For a routine maintenance visit, homeowners should expect to pay between $50-$100. The national average for a furnace repair is closer to $300. The cost can also fluctuate based on whether or not your unit is still under warranty, or if it has a more serious issue, as well as fluctuating rates between different HVAC contractors. If you’re hit with a furnace repair quote that is close to $1000, it’s worth considering a full furnace replacement.
Our technicians take the extra time to educate homeowners about what they can do to care for the heating system and prevent future problems. This may include showing a homeowner how to replace an air filter, common seasonal rituals, or perform a thorough cleaning. Even with the best-maintained machines, problems still arise. For those times, we are here 24/7 to help you with any emergency furnace repair.
