Furnace Repair in Frankfort, IL

Quality Care for a Reliable Heating System

If your furnace isn't working correctly, it may need repairs. Unfortunately, many homeowners don't know how to assess the problem adequately or try to fix it themselves, often leading to further damage. If you think your furnace needs repairs, it's best to call in a professional, and they will identify the problem and fix it quickly and efficiently.

Repairing a furnace can be expensive, so it's essential to make sure that you get it fixed as soon as possible. Often, the sooner you repair a problem, the less expensive it will be.

One of the most important things to consider when you are thinking about purchasing a new heater for your home. New furnaces are a significant investment, and they must be cared for properly to continue to work correctly even after years of use. Sometimes it makes sense to consider whether you need a repair or replacement.

Get started by calling our team at (815) 849-8893 today. Our Frankfort furnace repair specialists are committed to ensuring that you have everything you need.

Do You Need Repair Services?

The first thing that you need to do when you are faced with a furnace repair is to determine the exact nature of the problem. This is called a diagnostic service call. Your repair professional will arrive at your home or business and diagnose the issue, let you know the cost of the repair, and then you can decide whether to move forward or consider replacing your furnace. 

Once the problem is diagnosed, if you've decided to approve the repair, we will repair the furnace on the spot as long as we have the parts on our truck. If the part needs to be ordered, we will return to complete the repair as soon as possible.

One of the most common problems people face with their furnaces is dirty filters. This can be easily fixed by replacing the filter with a new one. Another common problem is that the furnace isn't getting enough air. This can be fixed by making sure that all of the vents in your home are open and that nothing is blocking them.

If you are still having problems with your furnace after you changed your filter and changed the batteries in your thermostat, it is best to consult with a professional furnace repair person. They will be able to help you determine what is wrong with your furnace and to fix it. 

So, if you are faced with a furnace repair, don't panic. When you have a trusted furnace repair company, they will be able to help you get your furnace up and running again in no time, and with regular maintenance, help prevent future repairs.

Furnace Repair Costs

The furnace repair cost can vary depending on the size of your furnace, the type of furnace, the number of repairs that need to be done, and whether you have 1 or 2 systems, a commercial system, or require rare parts. However, on average, professional furnace repair services cost around $100-$800.

To save money, regularly change your filter. This will delay the need for many repairs. For example, replacing a standard (not media) dirty filter costs around $5. So, if you have to replace the filter every month, you will end up spending $60 per year, much less than the cost of a repair. Bonus: less hassle and a system is running more efficiently, providing additional comfort and better air quality.

Regularly (annually) maintain your furnace and air conditioning system to save even more money. For two annual service appointments, one for the furnace and one for the air conditioner, you significantly reduce the chances of a breakdown or need for a repair. You get more use for a more extended period from your HVAC system, all for about $17 a month if you have a single system at your residence. Call to customize a plan for a dual system or a commercial property.

Typical Furnace Repair Job Types

The most common repair jobs that you will find on your furnace usually involve dirty filters and inadequate airflow. The more significant problems, like a broken heating element, will require professional help.

To reduce your stress and know your systems are adequately repaired and maintained, hire a professional who knows exactly what they are doing and who can get your furnace up and running quickly and safely.

How to Reduce Furnace Breakdowns

While it is impossible to eliminate your furnace repair problems, you can make the repairs much less frequent by carefully maintaining your furnace. For example, change or clean your furnace's filters regularly to ensure they're not clogged. 

Most, if not all, manufacturers recommend annual furnace maintenance to prolong your system's life and keep your warranty valid. If you regularly maintain your furnace, you will significantly reduce the number of minor repairs that need to be made on your furnace, and you may even altogether avoid major repairs like broken heating elements. So it is imperative for you to properly maintain your furnace to prevent costly repairs later on down the road.

How to Save Money on Furnace Repairs

You can save a lot of money throughout the year on furnace repairs by simply changing or cleaning your furnace's filters regularly and making sure that they're not clogged.

However, suppose you need to hire a professional. In that case, it is best to call someone who specializes in your particular type of furnace. This will ensure that you get the most knowledgeable person possible and don't have to pay for needless repairs.

Additionally, try hiring someone who will offer an annual contract instead of a one-time service call. This way, he will be able to keep an eye on your furnace throughout the year and will be able to fix any minor problems before they turn into expensive, major repairs.

By following these simple tips, you can save yourself a lot of money on furnace repairs each year. By correctly maintaining your furnace and hiring a professional when necessary, you can avoid most (if not all) of the common furnace repair problems that you may encounter. So keep these tips in mind and enjoy a warm, comfortable home all winter long!
