    Pricing Your Furnace Repair

    How much does repairing a furnace in Des Moines cost to repair?

    Our service calls have two goals: identify what’s wrong with the system and give you options on how to fix it. You get to decide how you’d like to proceed with the repair, and we’ll make sure you’re quoted a fair price for the work. No, if’s, and’s, or but’s. Just our promise to you.

    What factors affect the cost of a furnace repair?

    1. Replacement parts:
      If your furnace isn’t turning on or won’t properly heat your home, any number of parts could be the culprit. And because parts vary by cost, the cost of the repair ultimately comes down to which part needs to be replaced. At Golden Rule, we help lower costs by eliminating our evaluation fees when you repair with us. Other options include financing a repair or finding a temporary fix to get you through as long as possible.
    2. Warranty status:
      If your furnace is still under a part warranty, a labor warranty, or both, it can save you a lot of money on the repair. In some cases, you won’t pay anything at all! Golden Rule is a big fan of warranty protections, which is why we offer a 1-year labor warranty on all furnace repairs.
    3. Contractor experience:
      Experienced contractors add more value to your repair by way of better customer protections (licensed and insured techs, warranties, guarantees, etc), higher quality service, and faster response times. Golden Rule provides all of the above while still keeping our pricing fair and honest for our customers.

    Furnace Repair FAQ

    While we can’t exactly answer this question without sending a technician to assess your issues, we will say that a furnace can start acting up around the 10- to the 15-year mark. This is around the time a manufacturer’s warranty falls off, parts begin to fail, and a furnace replacement may be best.

    That said, with regular maintenance, you can keep a furnace going strong for 20+ years. Heck, we’ve got a few customers with furnaces that are older than some of our techs!

    Plenty of signs could indicate to you that your furnace requires service. While no one expects you to become an expert technician, keep an eye out for potential warning signs. Catching a problem early on may help you prevent any serious damage in the long term.

    Be on the lookout for:

    • Inadequate heating: Don’t settle for anything less than your absolute comfort. We can give you an accurate diagnosis of the issue and restore the functionality of your furnace as soon as possible.
    • Uneven heating: If your furnace heats your home unevenly, it’s likely a sign that something has gone wrong. If you have a zone control system, then it could be a problem with one of the dampers; if not, it could be an issue with a particular section of your ductwork.
    • Intermittent start-up: If your furnace only turns on occasionally or fails to cooperate sometimes, you may have a problem with the thermostat or pilot light.
