- Difficulty when starting the heater
- Thermostat is faulty or not working
- Inadequate heat in your home
- Poor Indoor air quality
- Visible damage (cracks, leaks, etc.) on your equipment

- Clicking, grinding or other abnormal noises coming from your system
- System is freezing up

The lifespan of a typical air conditioner is 10 to 15 years. Your unit's performance can last even longer if it is well-maintained.
As a general rule, buying a new unit may be preferable if yours is over ten years old, the warranty has expired, you're encountering more issues frequently, or the cost of repairs is high. It might be preferable to repair your air conditioner if it is less than ten years old, well-maintained, and has not suffered a serious breakdown.
The most frequent cause of furnace issues is dirty filters. Airflow is impeded by dust and dirt, and if the filter becomes overly clogged, the heat exchanger overheats, shuts off prematurely, and your house doesn't warm up. Replace the filter if the blower is running but no heat is coming out. Additionally, a clogged filter contributes to soot accumulation on the heat exchanger, decreasing the furnace's efficiency and shortening its lifespan. The owner's manual details the location and removal of the filter.
The cost of heating repair can vary widely based on factors like the type of heating system, the nature of the issue, and local labor rates. Minor repairs might cost around $100 to $300, while more complex problems could range from $500 to $1,000 or more. Factors like the need for replacement parts, the system's age, and the complexity of the repair influence the final cost. It's recommended to obtain multiple quotes from reputable HVAC professionals to get a better idea of the specific costs associated with your heating repair needs.
