Despite the age of the furnace, if the furnace repair cost is 50% of the cost of a new furnace then we recommend replacing it with a new furnace
If your furnace does not heat at all, then it's likely due to an issue with your home's thermostate. Thermostat malfunctions are the reason for most heating system failures. Other causes include a tripped circuit breaker, blown fuse or a pilot light that has gone out. In order to check to see if the furnace's circuit breaker is on or that its fuse has not blown, then you'll need to check the furnace's filters or give one of our licensed technicians a call.
We recommend that all Heating and Air Conditioning equipment be inspected, cleaned, and serviced at a minimum of once a year. The best system to stick to is to have the heating system serviced in the Fall and the air conditioning unit in the Spring.
The ideal temperature through the winter months is anywhere from 60 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit, but we recommend that most people keep the thermostat set to 68 degrees Farenheit for comfort. For summer, a good temperature to keep the thermostat set at is anywhere from 72 to 76 degrees Farenheit.

Usually when the outdoor ac unit doesn't turn on, the reason is due to an issue with the circuit breaker, usually that it has been tripped. If this is the case, the circuit breaker can be reset by locating the circuit breaker panel. If you find that the AC unit still does not work, the next probable cause is the thermostat.
On average, you can expect to spend $300 for a standard furnace repair. However, the price is subject to change depending on the current state of the furnace. It is best to consult one of our experts for a free consultation.
