Hudson Furnace Repair FAQs

What are some common furnace problems?

Here are four common furnace problems and what you can do about them:

  • Your furnace is making strange noises: This could be due to a loose blower belt or dirty burners. If the noise comes from the blower area, check to see if the belt is secure and debris-free. If the burners are dirty, they can be cleaned with a wire brush. 
  • Your furnace won't turn on: If your furnace doesn’t turn on, check to see if there's power to the unit. If there is, the problem could be with the igniter or pilot light. If the igniter isn't working, it will need to be replaced. If the pilot light is out, relight it following your owner's manual instructions.
  • Your furnace isn’t heating your home evenly: There could be a problem with the ductwork. Over time, ductwork can become disconnected or damaged, preventing heated air from reaching all areas of the home. To fix this problem, you'll need to hire a professional contractor to repair or replace the damaged ductwork.
  • Your furnace keeps shutting off: If your furnace keeps shutting off unexpectedly, it could be due to a clogged filter or dirty sensor. To fix this problem, simply clean or replace the filter and sensor according to your owner's manual instructions.
How often should I have my furnace serviced?

Generally speaking, most furnaces should be serviced once a year. However, if you have a high-efficiency furnace, you may only need to have it serviced every other year.

When is it time to call a professional for furnace repair?

Here are a few signs that indicate it’s time to call in a professional for a furnace repair: 

  • Your furnace is over 15 years old. With age comes wear and tear, and furnaces are no exception. If your furnace is older, it may be time for an inspection or repair.
  • You’ve noticed an increase in your energy bills. If your furnace is working overtime, it could be a sign that something’s wrong. You can nip the problem in the bud by scheduling an inspection before it gets worse—and more expensive!
  • You hear strange noises coming from your furnace. Grinding, banging, or squealing sounds usually signal that some part of the furnace is loose or needs replacing. 

If you’re experiencing any of these problems, don’t wait to call a Hudson furnace repair expert for help.

How much will it cost to repair my furnace?

The cost of repairing your furnace will depend on the severity of the damage and the type of furnace you have. On average, the cost to repair a furnace is in the $300 range. However, factoring in the cost of parts, labor, and any additional fees, the final cost could be higher.
