Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What do I do if my furnace stopped working?
There are three easy things you can check. First, make sure our circuit breaker didn’t trip. Second, check out your air filter to see if it’s dirty and needs to be replaced. Lastly, head to your thermostat. When was the last time the battery was changed? Is it set to the heat setting and on?
What can I do when my furnace stops working?
Step 1. Let’s start with the thermostat. Is it set to on? What about the heat setting?
Step 2. Still not working? Next go to the furnace switch. Is this in the “on” position?
Step 3. Next you can check the circuit breaker for your furnace. You want to look and see if it was tripped by mistake.
Step 4. A clogged furnace filter is a problem. Check your furnace filter to make sure it’s okay. If it’s dirty or clogged, it’s time to put a new one in place.

How long do furnaces last?
When it come to a gas furnace or oil furnace, it’s a little bit different. Let’s take a closer look. The average lifespan of a natural gas furnace is about 15-20 years, while an oil furnace should last about 15-25 years with proper care and maintenance. It’s important to remember that a regularly maintained furnace has a much longer lifespan than one that’s not been maintained.
Should you repair or replace your furnace?
How old is your system? Consider the cost of repairs over time, along with the frequency of repairs, then use the $5000 rule. What you do is to multiply the age by the cost of repair per year. Then, when it’s less than $5000, you’ll repair it. For example, if your furnace is 12 years old, and the repair will cost $500, multiply 12X500=6000, which is greater than 5000. In this case, we recommend that you replace the system.
How much does furnace repair cost?
The cost of furnace repairs truly varies based on the issue you’re having with your furnace. It can range from $100 to $1200. The average repair cost is about $300. In most cases, homeowners spend between $170 to $500. When considering the pricing, things like if you have a warranty comes into play. Another thing is looking at the type of furnace you have, along with labor and parts needed.
How often do I need to get my furnace maintained?
Good question! Have your furnace serviced at least once a year. In fact, furnace manufacturers all recommend annual inspections and maintenance. Another thing to understand is that many of the manufacturers require proof of prior maintenance if you put in a warranty claim. A clean, well-maintained until will save you money on utility costs, while also prolonging the life of your furnace.
