How much does it cost to fix a furnace?
It depends. Sometimes a furnace can be repaired quickly and easily, especially if the furnace has been well maintained over the years. Sometimes there are more complex problems that may require an expensive repair. We’ll always do a thorough check of your furnace and provide options on how to proceed.
Can I fix my furnace myself?
Not recommended. Attempting a repair on your own is a guessing game that wastes time, money, the inconvenience of a cold house, not to mention the inherent dangers involved. Our HVAC pro’s will know how to solve the problem quickly.
However, there are 2 important things a homeowner can do to reduce the likelihood of expensive repairs. The first is to regularly change the air filters and the second is to schedule regular furnace maintenance. Regular maintenance will help you avoid furnace break downs and help your equipment run at peak performance.
How long do furnaces usually last?
A well-maintained furnace can last up to 15 years. The key is being diligent about annual maintenance and regular filter changes. If your furnace is more that 15 years old, it’s time to consider a new furnace. Today’s furnaces offer much higher efficiencies which can substantially reduce your monthly utility bill.
Why is the furnace blowing cold air?
There are multiple reasons your furnace is blowing cold air in your home. It could be an issue with the flame detector, gas supply, air filter, pilot light or ignitor, or condensate lines. Another factor could have to do with damage to your ductwork. The furnace could be blowing cold air due to holes and cracks in the ductwork of your home.
