We understand the stress and headache that a malfunctioning furnace in the middle of winter can cause. Not only is it an inconvenience for you and your family, but it’s also a concern for safety in your house.
If you start to notice inaccuracies in your furnace like not producing heat, not turning on, blowing cold air, etc., we encourage you to have an HVAC expert address your concerns.
Here are some common furnace repair questions you may have:
#1: How much does furnace repair cost?
The short answer is that it depends on what repairs are needed. We see a ballpark average furnace repair cost around $500 in Anchorage, Alaska.
Due to the complexity of gas furnaces, furnace repairs may require more time to service and additional costs for parts. Gas furnaces can run (on average) $450 – $1,200 for repairs. Costs will vary based on the manufacturer, availability of parts, and the time it takes to do the repairs.

Here are some of the most common parts that we replace when furnaces malfunction. Please note that prices vary based on furnace and part makes and models.
