Furnace Repair

Furnaces are the main heating source in most homes . They work by blowing heated air through ducts which in turn deliver warm air to all parts of your house. During the extreme cold of the winter months, a furnace is the safest, most efficient, and most cost-effective way to ensure that you are warm and comfortable in your home.

Furnace Repair Company 

We understand the impact that a faulty furnace can have on your home and family. There is nothing worse than having your furnace stop working in the dead of winter, especially if your family includes people who are very young or very old, people who are medically fragile, and pets.

If your furnace does stop working, try out these troubleshooting tips before you call us.

  • Thermostat settings. Be sure that your thermostat is set on “heat” and raise the temperature. Otherwise, your furnace won’t work even if it is turned on.
  • Furnace filter. A clogged filter might cause the furnace to stop working. Replace the filter if dirty.
  • Circuit Breaker. Locate the circuit breaker on your home’s electrical panel, and reset it if it is in the “off” or “middle” position.
  • Furnace Switch. Ensure that the switch on your furnace is in the “on” or “up” position.
  • Furnace vents. Dirt, debris, small animals and garbage can clog up the furnace vents that open up to the outside of your home. Make sure there are no obstructions.

If these troubleshooting steps do not resolve the problem, give us a call. Furnaces can stop working at any time of the day or night.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the most expensive part to fix on a furnace?

Furnace repair costs can vary depending on several factors, including the type of furnace, the complexity of the issue, the cost of replacement parts, and labour rates in your area.

In 2023, the average furnace repair cost ranges from $100 to $1,200, with most homeowners spending around $300 to $500 for common repairs. Regular furnace maintenance is key to minimizing repair costs and extending your furnace’s lifespan.

While some minor maintenance tasks can be done by homeowners, attempting DIY furnace repairs is generally not recommended as furnaces are complex systems that require specialized knowledge and tools. It’s always best to rely on professionals like ALP Heating for any furnace repairs.

Is it worth fixing a furnace?

If you’re wondering whether it’s worth fixing your furnace or replacing it, there are several factors to consider.

Age, repair costs, energy efficiency, safety concerns, and environmental impact should all be taken into account.
If your furnace is over 15 years old, requires frequent repairs or the cost of repairs is more than 50% of the cost of a new furnace, it may be time to replace it.

However, if the repairs needed are minor or the furnace is less than 10 years old and well-maintained, it may be more cost-effective to repair it. Upgrading to a more energy-efficient furnace can also save you money on heating bills and help reduce your carbon footprint.

Furnace Maintenance Tips

Tip 1 – Change the filter: Replace the air filter in your furnace every three months or as recommended by the manufacturer. A dirty filter can restrict airflow and cause the furnace to work harder and overhear.

TIP 2 – Optimize performance by inspecting and adjusting burner flames as necessary.

Tip 3 – Check the thermostat: Make sure your thermostat is set to the correct temperature and is functioning properly. If your thermostat is outdated, consider upgrading to a programmable thermostat, which can save you money on heating costs.

Tip 4 – Inspect the furnace: Check the furnace for any signs of damage or wear and tear, such as cracks or rust. If you notice any issues, contact a professional HVAC technician to inspect and repair the furnace.

Tip 5 – Inspect all electrical connections and fasten any loose ones to ensure proper functioning.

Tip 6 – Schedule a professional maintenance service: Hire a professional HVAC technician to perform an annual maintenance service on your furnace. This service will include a thorough cleaning, inspection, and tuning of your furnace, and can help prevent breakdowns and costly repairs.

Tip 7 – Check for blockage and clean the drain hose
