Furnace repair is defined very differently depending on what company you call. At Homesense, our goal is to actually do what the name suggests, repair your system’s ability to heat your home. Our HVAC technicians aren’t incentivized to sell. You will get an honest & objective diagnostic on your heating system.
It’s sad to say, but this isn’t the norm in the heating and cooling industry. Our approach is to provide a thorough analysis of the situation, the facts as they exist, then let you decide. If you want our technician’s opinion, you can ask, but don’t expect him to give that unsolicited.
What I want to convey here is that many furnace repairs are not indicative of a system “on it’s last legs” or “about to die” – the quotes are what we’ve heard customers tell us other companies have said to them. As we talk about a lot at Homesense, it’s frustrating that many in the HVAC industry think the way to grow their business is by scaring customers into sales. So, I want to make sure the next time you have another company in your house, you’re educated.
The list below is by no means comprehensive, but gives some fixes and common furnace repairs that almost never should require you to have your system replaced.
There are literally hundreds of brands of systems in the heating and cooling industry. Almost every brand can be serviced with parts and equipment available from Indianapolis area suppliers. Our expert HVAC technicians are trained to service most major brands including:
If you have an older furnace or air conditioner (10+ years), you might determine that a repair of $200 are more is enough to get you to replace your system. In addition, sometimes these smaller repairs can be indicative of other issues, so I don’t want you to think the small furnace repair always solves every issue.
On the flip side, the issues below are larger repairs that oftentimes have costs involved that make it worth pricing out a new furnace. A big factor again is the age of your furnace, but it’s never a bad idea to have a comparison cost before you make a decision.
If a technician finds an issue with any of these and you’re on the fence whether or not to repair or replace, I strongly encourage you to get a 2nd opinion on your furnace before making the call. I know it’s tough to delay when you’re in the middle of the winter and your home is cold, however it can be an unnecessary and costly decision.
