Furnace Repair FAQs

Many clients have questions for us about repairing their furnaces and knowing when they need a furnace replacement:

Why is my furnace not working?

There could be multiple reasons for a faulty furnace. One of the most common is a dirty filter, which restricts the furnace’s airflow. You may also have a faulty pilot light, also known as an ignition sensor. This sensor helps to start up the furnace.

If your furnace keeps turning on and off, also known as short cycling, this can increase your energy bill. Short cycling is often caused by a faulty thermostat or low airflow.

How much is furnace repair?

The cost of your furnace repair will depend on the type of furnace you have as well as the specific problems you need to be repaired. Electric and gas furnace repairs differ in price. During your consultation with our technicians, they will request a quote that matches your HVAC problems and furnace type.

When should I replace my furnace?

We will recommend a furnace replacement if the unit you have is too old or damaged for repair. The average lifespan of a furnace is 15 to 30 years. You will notice problems like high heating bills, dry and dusty air, or leaking in older furnaces. Our technicians will help you find the best replacement for your furnace if it is too faulty to repair.
