Furnace Repair
What is the most common heating repair?

The most typical type of heating repair includes problems with the furnace's ignition system. Ignition problems can be caused by a malfunctioning igniter, thermocouple or pilot light. These components are required for igniting the fuel and initiating the heating process. Ignition problems can cause heating inefficiency, intermittent heating, or complete system failure. Prompt identification and repair of ignition issues is critical to ensuring the heating system's sustained operation and efficiency.

What is the cost of most heater repairs?

The cost of most heater repairs varies depending on the type and extent of the issue. Minor repairs like thermostat replacements or igniter fixes may range from $100 to $300. Major repairs such as heat exchanger replacements or blower motor fixes can cost between $500 to $1500 or more. Emergency repairs or those during peak seasons may incur higher costs.

Common Heating & Furnace Issues We Fix

Our HVAC technicians are well-equipped and experienced to tackle a wide range of heating issues. Whether your furnace isn't running like it used to or you are stuck with no heat, we will find the fastest solution to get things running again. We believe in treating the cause of the problem so you don't have to worry about repeat breakdowns.

We diagnose and repair a wide range of heater problems, including:

  • Strange Noises: You should never ignore whistling, rattling, and humming noises coming from your heater. Odd noises can indicate a problem with the ignition, air filter or blower fan. Different sounds indicate different problems, so we always recommend calling a professional to locate the issue.
  • Pilot Light Issues: A pilot light that won't stay lit can be an annoyance, to say the least. The most common causes for this problem include a broken thermocouple, clogged gas tube, faulty pilot control and gas supply issues. No matter the cause, our technicians will work efficiently to get your pilot light back to normal.
  • Thermostat Problems: If your furnace and thermostat are communicating properly, the indoor temperature should match the thermostat reading. Sometimes, this communication is interrupted by things like dead batteries and incorrect thermostat placement. When your systems aren't talking and your comfort takes a hit, our team will be there to find and repair the issue.
  • Uneven Heating Across Rooms: If your living room stays cozy but your bedroom is chilly, your heater is likely having an issue. You can start by changing the air filters, opening the vents, and moving anything obstructing airflow. If you still notice inconsistent temperatures, give our team a call!
  • Unresponsive Heating Unit: Many things can cause a heater to break down. Always call a professional to investigate the problem and inspect internal components. For your safety and to prevent further damage, call our team for fast help!

When Should Your Heating System Be Serviced?

Not all heating issues require a professional! If you don't have enough heat in your home or your heating system isn't turning on, you can start with the obvious culprits:

  1. Clean the thermostat and change the batteries.
  2. Check that the air filters are not clogged and replace them if needed.
  3. Open the vents fully and move anything that might be blocking airflow.

If these steps don't restore your heat, it's time to call a professional. We always recommend scheduling service if you have no heat or cold air through the vents, hear odd noises, notice burning smells or if your utility bills have unexpectedly gone up. An HVAC technician will safely and efficiently determine the cause of the issue and the best repair or replacement solution.
