Common Furnace Repair Questions

Your furnace has definitely worked a lot during the winter, so you might have some concerns or questions about furnace repairs. We have answered some of the most commonly asked questions on furnace repair below to give you the information that you need: 

#01. How much do furnace repairs cost? 
The cost of furnace repair is unique for every situation. Furnace repair contractors would likely charge a service fee - this typically ranges from $50 to $100. In addition to that is the cost of the actual repair - this depends on what needs to be done plus labour and replacing components. The average furnace repair would cost $270. 

#02. What are the most common furnace problems? 
While there are several issues that might arise with furnaces, there are some common issues that occur more than others. Here are some of the most common furnace repairs: 

*Faulty ignitors can be caused by grime and dirt buildup due to lack of regular maintenance. These ignitors should be replaced. 

*A bad thermostat will prevent any furnace from effective heating the home. It will not be able to call for heating as needed. This can also call for a thermostat replacement. 

*Fault flame sensors can be the cause as to why fuel can burn improperly - this is unsafe for you and your family. When the flame sensor is bad, your furnace can shut down. 

*Having to replace your furnace’s motor can be costly, and it might require for some parts to be ordered. 

#03. What should I know about emergency furnace repairs? 
Furnace breakdowns are something that you do not want to deal with, and it can leave you without heat at the most crucial times - overnight, on the weekend, or even during holiday celebrations. Fortunately, there are many emergency furnace repair contractors that are able to tackle your repair concerns outside normal business hours. During an emergency repair call, furnace technicians will inspect your system and diagnose the issue that prevents your heating system from producing heat. While some issues can be fixed on the spot, there are far more extensive problems that might require certain parts or components to be ordered, or you might be required to have a new system to be installed. HVAC experts will inform you of the problem at hand with the cost it will take, and upon your approval, they will proceed with performing the repairs or they can schedule the repairs as needed.

by Rita, Scarborough on Twintech Heating and Cooling
We were so pleased with their service

When our old oil furnace finally broke down we decided it was time to finally convert to natural gas and finally install central air conditioning at the same time. Knowing it was going to be a significant investment for us, we wanted to make the right choice. Twintech came highly recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. From the first contact with the salesperson, until the final touches on the installation, we were so pleased with their service. Everyone from the company was so friendly, efficient and a pleasure to deal with. Best of all, the cost was very competitive. We would certainly recommend Twintech to anyone requiring HVAC work in their home.

Within a couple of hours, we had a new unit up and running!

During the hottest week in the summer our old A/C decided to call it quits. I called Twintech Heating & Cooling after receiving a referral from a family member; came highly rated for being an honest, family-run business, who appreciates their customers. Dave was able to accommodate my hectic schedule and book a late evening appointment to walk through the specifics. Greg and Mitch arrived exactly on time a few days later, were very polite and friendly, and within a couple of hours had a new unit up and running. I also received a follow-up call to ensure we were happy with the Amana.

Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors

Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors to the house for the installers to remove the old furnace and install a new furnace.
I also made recommendations of the tankless water heater that we had installed and items to address. We did not know they also installed tankless water heaters.

by Bill, Pickering on Twintech Heating and Cooling
Proud to support this local company

Price was not the cheapest nor the most expensive of my quotes. It's the quality of the installation that makes for a good AC system. The twins' knowledge & professionalism was evident in the small details:
Very clean work. Greg made sure that the refrigerant level & temperature were correct. They reinstall the insulation & vapor barrier around the wall. The outside electrical cords were secured to the wall. Proud to support this local company. Thank you.
