Furnace Repair Cost
When you wake up in the dead of night, a light snow cascading against the bedroom window, and your breath is visible in the air, you know something has gone wrong. Your room shouldn’t be this cold! Chances are that your home furnace system is on the fritz and requires repairs once more. Unfortunately, an unexpectedly high repair bill may be awaiting you on the other end.
Knowing the average cost for a furnace repair job can prepare you for the matter when the time comes. On average, homeowners spend between $162 to $265 for their furnace repairs. Some have reportedly paid less, but we certainly would not trust a technician who charges so little for their service. Some are paying higher, but those homeowners are probably being scammed by an amateur technician looking to make a quick buck.
What Can I Do to Protect My Heating Unit?
Depending on the type of heating unit you have installed for your home, you can do a few different things to ensure the entire unit is protected from the weather and other potentially damaging problems.
For instance, a heat pump should be elevated enough to put it above the anticipated snowfall to ensure it continues running efficiently and has the allotted drainage that the manufacturer recommends. Next, a base of stone surrounding the entire unit can ensure the interior coils are clean and free of any dirt or grass. Finally, the unit should be around 18” from the wall of your home to allow an expert technician the opportunity to service and maintain the unit itself. This extra space will also allow the unit proper clearance room to ensure performance is at its very best.
Our expert technicians will go over everything with you during the installation process, ensuring future repairs and maintenance procedures are easily accomplished.
Why Should I Have My Gas Furnace Checked Annually?
Every single furnace manufacturer in the world recommends homeowners have annual inspections and routine maintenance performed on their heating system by a qualified technician. In some instances, damages to the heating unit itself caused by improper maintenance or a lack of an inspection will not be covered under the warranty. This means that a checkup once a year, or perhaps even every six months, is should be done to ensure the warranty remains in place. While it is not actually required, it is highly recommended by all service technicians who work on heating and cooling systems in homes and businesses.
If your furnace is over ten years old, it is best to have it checked annually. Some technicians recommend having a brand new furnace checked every other year. Ultimately, the choice is up to you, the homeowner, but our technicians can make recommendations and offer advice on the matter.

Furnace Repair Tips
Your home’s furnace is the type of appliance that we pay little mind to until something goes wrong. The unit is typically installed in the basement. Out of sight, out of mind, right? Well, no. That shouldn’t ever be the case. Like any other appliance in your home, your furnace deserves some love and attention.
To get the most out of your home’s furnace, consider the following:
- Replace the Air Filter – A dirty air filter will lead to many issues with today’s furnaces. Clean or replace the air filter on a monthly basis, or according to the manufacturer’s specifications. If you’re unclear how to replace the filter, speak with a repair professional.
- Check the Thermostat – If you notice uneven heating throughout your home, check the battery level of your thermostat. In many models, replacing the battery will solve this issue. Otherwise, call a professional to diagnose the system.
