What Does The Typical Furnace Repair Cost?

Here’s how much you should plan to budget for!

Furnace Repair Costs by Part

Like most products in your life, furnaces can be repaired with new parts when issues arise. In most cases, repairing with parts can help you save money and prolong the life of your current furnace. If you’re lucky, you can catch a break and only end up spending anywhere from $75 to $200 on parts, such as a flame sensor or thermocouple. However, you might have to replace the heat exchanger or switch out a Condenser & Evaporator Coil, and those parts can run from $500 to $2000 in price.

Average Furnace Repair Costs

An average property owner can expect to spend $289 on furnace repairs over a year. Most homeowners spend between $131 and $458, though. Prices can increase even further if your furnace hasn’t been serviced in a long time. With proper service and inspection, your costs can decrease substantially.

Furnace Cleaning and Inspection Cost

If you’ve decided that your furnace requires regular cleanings and inspections, you can expect to spend anywhere from $100-$300 for a furnace inspection and cleaning. If you want to add on duct cleaning, be prepared to pay an extra $250-$500, although you can find deals. Homeowners looking to get their furnace inspected without a tuneup or cleaning will usually pay between $50 and $100.
