Paul B. says, "Tommy and Chris were meticulous during the install of my complete HVAC system. They arrived on time each day ready to work. It was apparent Tommy was very knowledgeable, I watched him as he was teaching Chris how to be a job foreman. Tommy instructed Chris not cut corners or take shortcuts and double checked all the critical details. They also installed new ducting in my attic when it was 105 degrees outside. No easy task. The owner, Jeremy, recognized I was a veteran, fireman or law enforcement, and offered a discount without me asking. He also included a few extras at no charge. Thanks all the guys from Active Air Specialist" Read more

Lisa N. says, "Very pleased with the work on our bathrooms (Hall/Kids bath and Master Bath) from beginning to end. The procedure was extensive in that it involved going through exactly what we wanted, creating a contract, and then having as many meetings as were necessary to come up with the final design. I like the combination of obtaining the proper design and fixture advice while still having the freedom to present my own ideas." Read more

Your Furnace and Heating System Repair or Maintenance questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does furnace and heating system repair cost?

Furnace repair costs $100 to $480 on average, depending on the problem, furnace size, brand, and fuel type. Oil or gas furnace repairs cost $100 to $480, while electric furnace repairs cost $100 to $380.

An annual furnace maintenance plan costs $150 to $450 and includes an inspection, tune-up, cleaning, and minor repairs. Regular tune-ups to clean the air filters, burners, and pilot-light systems prevent major breakdowns and sudden furnace failures.

How much does furnace and heating system replacement cost?

Furnace replacement costs $2,000 to $5,400 on average, depending on the size, fuel type, brand, and efficiency. 

  • Natural gas and oil furnaces are typically more expensive than electric furnaces but cost less to run.
  • The Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency (AFUE) rating measures the energy efficiency of the furnace. High-efficiency furnaces cost 30% to 100% more than standard-efficiency models but save $100 to $200 per year on energy bills.
  • Furnaces from popular brands like Carrier and Lennox typically cost more to install and repair than other brands.

Does homeowners insurance cover furnace repair?

Most homeowners insurance policies only cover furnace repairs if the breakdown was caused by a natural disaster, such as a fire or flood. Standard policies do not cover repairs for normal wear and tear. Consider adding equipment breakdown coverage to your policy to cover furnace and heating system repairs.

How long does it take to repair a furnace or heating system?

Furnace repair takes 1 to 2 hours on average, depending on the problem. Complete furnace or heating system replacement takes 5 to 18 hours, depending on the size, fuel type, and job complexity.

Do I tip the furnace repair guy?

Furnace repair technicians typically don't expect a tip, but they appreciate a $10 to $20 tip for outstanding service. Consider offering the technician a beverage, send positive feedback to their manager, and post a positive review online.
