As important as maintaining your air conditioning is in the summer, having an operable furnace is just as important in the winter. However, it can be affected by dirt and debris buildup just like an A/C unit. For furnace repair Cherry Hill residents can always count on, Davis Home Services delivers.
What Does a Home Furnace Do?
A home furnace typically features a heat exchanger, gas valve, burners, control system such as a thermostat, blower, as well as a duct and ventilation system. It generates heat in order to warm your house then uses its vents to release the combustion gases via its flue pipe.
How Long Does a Furnace Last?
Landlords, homeowners, and renters can typically expect a conventional home furnace to last between 15 and 20 years.
What Can Cause a Furnace to Stop Working?
Similarly to air conditioning units, furnaces can encounter problems if they have clogged or dirty filters. Dirt, dust, and other debris impede airflow. So, if a filter gets too dirty, your furnace’s heat exchanger can overheat causing the unit to shut off.
What Do You Do When Your Furnace Goes Out?
When your furnace goes out, you should first use the furnace shut off switch, as well as turn off the furnace thermostat. Then, check for and replace dirty filters and check your ducts. If your furnace still doesn’t work, you might need furnace repair.
What is the Average Cost of Furnace Repair?
As with all plumbing services, the cost of furnace repair varies depending on the extent of repair needed. Overall, homeowners can expect to pay between $160 and $400 for furnace repair.
