Question #1: What needs to be repaired?

Furnaces have many different pieces and parts, and it’s hard to price a repair without first knowing what actually needs fixing.

But to give you an idea of what you could pay, below are some of the most common furnace repairs and their corresponding average price points:

  • Broken thermostat: $50 to $200
  • Problematic flame sensor: $80 to $250
  • Broken down blower motor: $150 to $450
  • Faulty ignitors: $300 to $400
  • Busted heat exchanger: $100 to $200

The costs above can also vary based on:

  1. Whether or not you still have a valid furnace warranty
  2. The contractor you hire

Let’s take a closer look at these 2 furnace repair price factors.

Question #2: Do I have a warranty?

If your furnace is still under warranty, repair costs may drop--it all depends on the following:

  • The type of warranty you have: Warranties come in all different shapes and sizes. Coverage can range anywhere between 3 and 10 years--even up to 20 years for the heat exchanger. Most warranties only cover the cost of parts, though, and not necessarily the labor involved to repair or replace the part(s).
  • If you registered your furnace with the manufacturer: Many manufacturers only honor their warranty if it was registered with them when the furnace was first installed.
  • Who serviced your furnace in the past years: If you do not hire qualified technicians to inspect and repair your furnace, manufacturers may void the warranty.
  • How often your furnace is serviced: Most manufacturers require that you have your furnace maintained annually in order to keep the warranty valid.

Question #3: Who will I hire?

Costs vary depending on which contractor you hire. In most situations, just shopping based on the cheapest price isn’t the best idea.

Why? Low quality contractors may charge less, but they likely won’t provide quality repair work. Shoddy work upfront can only lead to more problems down the road.

So always make sure you take the time to find a qualified, professional technician to inspect and repair your furnace.

Below are 3 easy ways to find out if the contractor is adequately qualified:

  • Verify the contractor is licensed and insured
  • Check the company’s online customer reviews
  • Make sure the contractor is in good standing with the Better Business Bureau
