How much does a furnace service call cost?
Servicing a gas furnace can cost anywhere from $50 to $300 depending on the level of service required. If you frequently maintain your furnace, the cost should be lower. If you’ve waited many years to service your unit, your cost will likely be higher.  Call First Choice Heating & Cooling before it’s time to turn your furnace on for the season to ensure it’s running in top shape and will be all winter long.
How long does a furnace last in Wisconsin?
A furnace typically lasts 15 to 20 years. The length of time it lasts can depend on how often the unit was serviced as a furnace that receives regular maintenance is likely to last longer than one that does not.  To learn more about maintaining your furnace, contact First Choice Heating & Cooling and we’ll work with you to determine if your unit is in need of maintenance or replacement.
Should I repair or replace my furnace?
There are two main reasons why you may want to replace rather than repair your furnace
  • If your furnace is 10-15 years old, it is generally recommended that you replace your furnace. 
  • If the cost of a repair is half the cost of replacing the furnace, replacing the furnace may be the wise choice. 
First Choice Heating & Cooling can help you determine whether you should repair or replace your furnace. Contact us with any of your furnace questions today.

Our experience with furnaces lets us break down what’s wrong with the unit and determine what steps must be taken to make the appropriate repair. When we repair your furnace you can expect a job done correctly the first time.

What’s Wrong With My Furnace?

From lack of maintenance to mechanical failure, there could be many reasons your furnace isn’t working properly. Let’s talk about a few reasons your furnace might need a visit from 1st Choice.

Your filter is dirty. A filter that hasn’t been changed or cleaned can easily impede the performance of your furnace and cause it to use more energy to work than should be needed.

Your furnace is short cycling. If you hear your furnace turning on, off and then on again more frequently than you are used to, there’s a good chance your furnace is short cycling because of a clogged filter, improper air flow or a bad thermostat setting.

Your heat exchanger is cracked. This is a serious problem that requires immediate repair. Heat exchanger cracks can cause dangerous carbon monoxide leaks.

There’s a problem with your electric ignition or pilot light. This can be caused by a number of reasons but will prevent adequate heat from getting into your home.

The thermostat is malfunctioning. This can easily lead to issues with comfort levels and might be easily resolved by replacing or repairing the thermostat.

Your blower belt has slipped or is frayed. If you’re hearing a loud high pitched sound, there’s a good chance this has happened.

Your pilot light is yellow or flickering. This can be a sign of danger as the light can be yellow because of carbon monoxide levels. You’ll want to power the furnace off and call 1st Choice immediately.

Call 1st Choice For Any Furnace Repair

Whether it’s your pilot light or your thermostat, 1st Choice Heating & Cooling is happy to help. We’ll be there as soon as possible to get you back up and running.

Mike has come to our house a few times in the last few years for my furnace and AC that are getting older. He’s always very friendly and super informative. And my dog LOVES I am! It’s actually adorable how my dog wants to sit right by him while he is working.I feel like I can trust him to give me an honest opinion.Looking at other reviews, it looks like my intuition is right!

Highly recommended! In addition to installing a new AC unit in a new location, we also hired them to relocate our furnace and gas line - all part of a basement remodel. The workers were very knowledgeable, and worked with us through every detail/measurement to ensure our ultimate project would be a success. Kudos to Rob, Lynn, and Jessica for taking great care of us!
