There are some important factors to consider in the cost of Furnace Repair Brooklyn Center.

Starting to think a furnace repair is in your near future? Want to know how much this might cost you? Well, without inspecting your particular furnace, we can’t know for sure. But, to give you an idea of what to expect, below we’ve provided some average prices (along with the factors that affect those prices).

Sometimes a furnace replacement is not needed. All Climate Mechanical can help you determine if the problem is something that can be repaired. A furnace repair in Minnesota can cost anywhere from $200 to $800+, with the average furnace repair costing $350.

Key factors that will affect the price of your furnace repair include:

  • Type of repair needed
  • Whether the furnace is still under warranty
  • Contractor you choose

Let’s look at exactly how those 3 factors above affect your Furnace Repair Brooklyn Center cost.

Factor #1: Whether the furnace is still under warranty

Before you schedule your furnace repair, check to see if your furnace is still warranty.

More specifically, 3 types of warranties to check include:

  1. Parts warranty. This warranty covers the cost of any replacement parts that are deemed defective due to faulty manufacturing. A furnace’s parts warranty usually lasts around 5 years and is provided by the manufacturer (i.e. Trane, Goodman, Carrier, etc.). Because a furnace heat exchanger is particularly pricey, however, manufacturers sometimes offer lifetime warranties for furnace heat exchangers.
  2. Labor warranty. The contractor who installs your furnace will usually offer a labor warranty that lasts from 1 to 2 years from the date of the installation. This warranty covers the cost of labor to complete any repairs that arise due to faulty installation.
  3. Extended warranty. Both manufacturers and contractors often offer “extended” warranties. Depending on who you buy it through (contractor or manufacturer) this warranty will add anywhere from 5 to 10 years onto your existing parts or labor warranty.

Not sure if your furnace is still covered under warranty? Our suggestion is to contact the contractor who installed your furnace. They will know whether your furnace is still under the labor warranty and can contact the manufacturer to determine whether you’re still under the parts warranty or an extended warranty.

Factor #2: Type of repair that is needed

Regardless of whether you have an electric, gas or oil furnace, a lot of things can go wrong over time and necessitate a repair.

Because there are so many possible furnace repairs—all with varying price points—we’ve listed below some of the more common repairs we see in the Twin Cities Metro area:

  • Thermostat issues: $200 to $300+
  • Cracked heat exchanger: $1,500+
  • Bad blower motor: $500+
  • Electronic ignition/pilot light problems: $300 to $400
  • Clogged gas line: $300 to $400 
  • Clogged condensate drain pan/line (high-efficiency gas furnaces only): $250+

Factor #3: Contractor you choose

Here’s the bottom line: The higher the quality and experience a contractor has, the more they typically charge.

But don’t be intimidated by a higher repair price—choosing a higher quality technician means you’ll likely pay more upfront but you’ll save money in the long run. Why? Well, a furnace repair done right means you won’t have to pay for the tech to come back out a week later (or months later) when the furnace acts up again due to shoddy repair work.

But beyond experience level, contractors also charge in different manners. Two ways a contractor can charge include

  1. Flat-fee pricing
  2. Hourly pricing

So what’s the difference and why does it matter? Well, with flat-fee pricing, there are no surprises or opportunities for techs to “milk the clock” when it comes to the final bill. Flat-fee pricing means a tech inspects your furnace and then tells you, before any work begins, how much your repair bill will be.  For more information about saving energy with a properly installed or repaired furnace or furnace maintenance take a look at this article from Connexus Energy.

Spring may not be far off but its not here yet. With 4+ inches of snow this week and another 6+ inches this weekend the cold and snow are becoming a bit old. That’s just par for the course during an average Minnesota winter.

Many homeowners don’t think about their furnace for much of the year, only to be frustrated when they go to turn it on in the fall and find a problem. Sometimes they don’t realize a furnace inspection is needed until the middle of winter.  All Climate Mechanical can help you avoid this situation with our Furnace Inspection Brooklyn Center.

Regular furnace maintenance is essential to ensuring that your system works correctly when you need it. By getting a professional inspection from our expert technicians, you can be sure that you don’t need any major repairs or replacement.

What to expect from your furnace maintenance appointment

A furnace requires annual service and maintenance to make sure it performs as it should. Even if your furnace appears to be working properly, it’s smart to schedule a Furnace Inspection Brooklyn Center appointment. The furnace inspection and maintenance work performed by one of our experienced HVAC technicians will ensure safe, efficient operation and help prolong the life of your heating system.

The checklist for a typical furnace service will include the following work

  • Furnace Service – Prep for peak performance. Annual furnace service is the best way to ensure reliable, efficient performance after your system isn’t used in the summer. Your furnace is part of a larger system including your homes Insulation and Ventilation. The importance of regular maintenance has many rewards.
  • Visual Inspection – Your technician will check not only the furnace, but also the fuel line, flue pipe, main plenum and ductwork.
  • Combustion Safety – It’s important to make sure that your furnace is venting correctly, with no danger of combustion gases getting into your living space.
  • Filter Check – A dirty filter will be replaced or cleaned. When air filters become clogged with dirt, dust, pet dander and other particulates, air flow is reduced and system efficiency plummets. The HVAC tech will also confirm proper filter size and type. Filters should be replaced or cleaned at least every other month. More often if the family has pets or a remodeling project underway. Visit our Air Filters Page to learn more about the importance of air filters.
  • Furnace Cleaning – Removing carbon, soot and other combustion byproducts from the burner and combustion chamber helps to promote more efficient operation.
  • Blower Check – By listening to your system’s blower and performing a visual inspection, your HVAC specialist will be able to determine if there’s a bearing or balance problem.
  • System Check – Part of the service includes running the furnace and blower to confirm that the thermostat is working correctly, and that warm air is being delivered to your living space.
  • Occupant Issues – Let your technician know if certain parts of the house are colder or draftier than others. Our experts are trained to identify other factors that affect home comfort and energy efficiency. Even if your furnace is working perfectly, your house may have insulation, air leakage or ductwork conditions that impact comfort and energy efficiency (see sidebar).
