The cost of your furnace repair depends on…

1. The type of repair you’ll need


Simple repairs, like replacing a faulty thermostat, costs less than a more complex repair, such as replacing a cracked heat exchanger.

Furnaces have many different components and the cost to repair the furnace all depends on which component needs to be repaired or replaced. 

For example, let's say you call in a professional because your furnace is blowing cold air.

Any of the following components could be at fault for a furnace that’s blowing cold air:

  • The air filter is plugged
  • The pilot light is not functioning
  • The furnace is having ignition problems
  • And much more...

Each component listed above has a different cost based on whether it needs to be repaired or completely replaced. That’s why the first step to understanding the cost of your repair should be a professional in-home diagnosis.

2. The age of the system


Typically, the older a furnace is, the more expensive the repair.

That’s because older furnaces could have multiple components that are worn out. Because repairs start with a thorough inspection of the entire system, the tech may find various components that need to be replaced in order to get the system back to efficient operation.

3. Whether or not your warranty is valid


If your furnace’s manufacturer’s warranty is still valid, your repair will cost less.

All furnaces are sold with a manufacturer's warranty. This warranty covers the cost of any needed replacement parts for a certain amount of time. Keep in mind, though, that a manufacturer’s warranty does not cover the cost of labor. That means, if the part that needs to be replaced costs $450, you’ll be reimbursed for that cost, but not for the cost of the labor to install it.

Typically, manufacturer warranties last anywhere from 1 to 10 years. However, if you haven’t had your furnace serviced annually, your warranty is likely void. Most manufacturers include the stipulation that you keep your furnace maintained/serviced in order to keep the warranty valid.

If you’re not sure whether or not your furnace’s manufacturer’s warranty is still valid, you’ll need to contact the manufacturer and provide them with the furnace model and serial number. They’ll be able to look up the installation information and let you know if the warranty is valid or void.

4. The company you hire


Typically, HVAC contractors who are licensed, insured and highly-skilled charge more for their services. 

Remember, you get what you pay for. If you spend a bit more for an experienced, knowledgeable tech, you'll likely pay less in the long run. That's because high-quality work means fewer mistakes and peace of mind knowing that you're getting your repair done right the first time!

To find a quality contractor: 

  • Ensure they are licensed and insured in the state of California
  • Make sure they have at least 5-10 years of experience 
  • Check their customer reviews for red flags (i.e. many negative reviews)
  • Make sure they will provide an upfront, written estimate
