Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What happened to my furnace?
Not working? Be sure to check your air filter and make sure it’s not dirty, which can cause issues. Another thing you can do is look at your thermostat to make sure it’s in the heat setting and clicked on. Could the battery need replacing? Lastly, is there any chance that your circuit breaker tripped? Give a quick check.
My furnace isn’t working. Are there things I can check before calling for help?
Step 1. You’ll want to go and check the thermostat first. Is it turned on? Is it set to the heat setting?
Step 2. There’s a switch on your furnace. Is it set to on?
Step 3. Did your circuit breaker for the furnace get knocked to the off position? Make sure it isn’t tripped.
Step 4. Is your furnace filter getting clogged up? A dirty filter will do that. Replace it with a clean one.
Step 5. Check the furnace front panel. Is it shut completely?
Step 6. Check the gas valve. Is it on?
Step 7. Any chance your air ducts are blocked?
Step 8. Are you still having problems with your furnace? It’s time to call a professional.
How many years can I expect my furnace to last?
The average lifespan of a natural gas furnace runs around 15-20 years, but that’s when it’s taken care of regularly. When it comes to oil furnaces, it’s a bit longer. In fact, the lifespan of an oil furnace could be 15-25 years when you take care of it with proper care. It’s good to remember that routine care will help your furnace last much longer than one that’s been ignored.
Should you repair or replace your furnace?
The age of your system is the first thing to account for. You need to also look at the cost of repair and frequency of repairs. Use the $5000 rule when figuring this out. Simply multiply the age by the cost of repair per year and if that is less than $5000, then repair the unit. For example, if your furnace is 12 years old, and the repair will cost $500, multiply 12X500=6000, which is greater than 5000. This time, because the number is larger, we recommend that you replace the unit.
How much does furnace repair cost?
The cost of furnace repair is going to depend on what’s going on with it. The pricing can range from $100 to $1200. The average repair cost is closer to $300, though. In most cases, homeowners spend between $170 to $500. When it comes to pricing, it depends on the type of furnace you have, whether the furnace is under warranty, and then, you’ll also want to figure in replacement parts it needs and labor costs.
How often should I have furnace maintenance?
Did you know that you should have your system serviced at least once a year? We suggest you do it in the fall, before it gets too cold. Furnace manufacturers all recommend annual inspections and maintenance. When it comes to warranty claims, it’s important to know that many of them require proof of prior and ongoing maintenance. A clean and regularly maintained furnace not only saves you money on your utility bills, but it also helps prolong the life of the system.
