Does My Furnace Need a Repair or Replacement?

It can be difficult to determine whether your furnace needs a simple repair or if it’s time to replace your system. In most cases, furnace problems can simply be repaired if the system is less than ten years old. Usually, if you do not see frequent issues, a repair is all that is necessary. If your furnace is getting old or is not performing optimally, our skilled, knowledgeable experts are here to help you get the most out of your budget and your heating system.  You can always count on us to analyze the situation, identify your options, and help you determine whether a repair or system replacement is necessary.

Common signs that it’s time to replace your heating system include:

  • Rising Energy Bills
  • 12+ Years Old
  • Frequent Repairs/Breakdowns
  • Repairs Add up to 1/3 the Cost of Replacement

How Much Does a Furnace Repair Cost?

We believe honesty is one of the most important aspects of doing business.

There are a few major factors that impact our furnace repair pricing:

Warranty

If you have an HVAC parts warranty, you may be covered in the case that a part fails and needs to be replaced. Each system, if installed by a licensed contractor and registered with the manufacturer comes with a limited parts warranty.

Component Repair or Replacement

When parts or components can’t be repaired, you will need to replace them. Purchasing a new part will add to your total cost of furnace repair and can vary in price, largely dependent on brand, our supplier’s pricing, availability and if it’s a part that we stock on our trucks.

Time and Difficulty of Repair

It goes without saying, but the longer a repair takes the more costly it can become. Some factors that can have the biggest impact on price are the system location, complexity of repair, age of system, wiring requirements—and whether the system is being repaired during our workday or as an after-hours emergency.

Technician Experience and Training

Have you ever heard of the saying you get what you pay for?  We are not the lowest price contractor out there, but we also aren’t the highest.  Our pricing is fair and takes into consideration the value and experience we offer.  We don’t allow just anyone to show up to your house. All our technicians are trained and certified to service all makes and models of heating equipment, enabling them to diagnose and repair your issue right the first time, every time.  We also are one of very few contractors who backs up our repair work with Shift Air Care Member Ship Program.

FAQs

The most common furnace repairs include issues with the thermostat, ignition system, blower motor, and heat exchanger. Thermostat problems often result in improper temperature control, while ignition system failures can lead to a lack of heat. A faulty blower motor may cause airflow problems, and a damaged heat exchanger can result in a dangerous carbon monoxide leak.

The most common furnace failure is a malfunctioning or failed ignition system. This can prevent the furnace from igniting and producing heat. Ignition system failures can be caused by a faulty igniter, pilot light, or electronic ignition control. Regular maintenance and inspection can help prevent this common issue and ensure proper operation of the furnace.

The most expensive repair on a furnace is often related to the heat exchanger. The heat exchanger is responsible for transferring heat from the combustion process to the air being circulated throughout the home. If the heat exchanger becomes cracked or damaged, it can lead to carbon monoxide leaks and potentially hazardous conditions. Repairing or replacing a heat exchanger can be costly, and in some cases, it may be more economical to replace the entire furnace.

Common home furnace problems include a malfunctioning thermostat, clogged or dirty filters, ignition system failures, blower motor issues, and problems with the pilot light. These issues can result in inadequate heating, improper temperature control, reduced airflow, and even complete furnace failure. Regular maintenance, such as filter replacement and system inspections, can help prevent these problems and ensure the efficient and safe operation of your home furnace.

The cost to service a furnace in Canada can vary depending on factors such as the location, the type of furnace, and the specific services required. On average, a furnace service in Canada can range from $100 to $300.
