- Sudden spikes in energy use or steadily increasing heating costs
- Leaking around, underneath, or nearby the furnace unit

Frequently Asked Furnace Repair Questions
Some of the frequently asked questions we receive include:
Why is my furnace making weird noises?
With all mechanical systems, odd noises are most commonly a clear sign that a part needs to be repaired or replaced. Much of the time the part may simply have come loose from its setting, but this needs to be taken care of immediately—failure to get repair on time is the leading cause of untimely furnace replacement!
Is furnace maintenance important?
We can’t overstate how important maintenance is. Your furnace works endlessly throughout the cool months, which means it accumulates a good deal of wear and tear. Maintenance counteracts these issues, leading to a longer system life span and better performance, which helps you to save money.
How can I improve the efficiency of my furnace?
Outside of scheduling annual maintenance, be sure to change your furnace’s air filter once every one to two months. Change it more often if you have pets or a large family. If you’re looking for a filter that lasts longer and does a better job, go with pleated polyester filters over fiberglass.
Does homeowners insurance cover furnace repair?
Sometimes. “Homeowners insurance covers repairs or replacement of furnaces, boilers, and other parts of your HVAC unit if they are damaged by a covered condition in your policy,” says one insurance professional.
What that means is:
- Your homeowners will probably cover repairs/replacement if your HVAC unit is damaged by “peril” (example: fire or water damage from a burst pipe).
- Your homeowners will probably not cover repairs/replacement due to a mechanical problem, earthquake, or flood.
How much does it cost to repair a furnace?
A lot depends on where you live. For 2020, a national average for furnace repair is $295. Electric furnaces are usually cheaper to repair. Because they are more complex systems, gas furnaces cost more to repair.
Hourly charges usually start at $75/hour but can range from $50 to $150/hour. Again, it depends on where you live. Enter your ZIP code in HomeAdvisor’s furnace repair calculator for an estimate for your area of Ohio.
Should you repair or replace your furnace?
The age of your furnace or HVAC system is a big factor. Furnaces last from 15 to 20 years, depending on maintenance and homeowner diligence (replacing furnace filters, etc.).
Your local furnace repair professional should be honest about what you need and when you may need it. But a good rule of thumb is, if it’s under 10 years old, repairing your furnace is best. If it’s over 12 years old, consider a replacement.
What can cause a furnace to stop working?
Dirty filters are the most common cause of furnace problems (and the easiest to prevent). When the filter is dirty and clogged, the heat exchanger works harder and may overheat.
Other common issues that can lead to a service call include:
- Blower runs non-stop
- Cycling too often
- Lack of maintenance
- No heat
- Provides heat, but not enough
JM Mechanical Heating & Cooling recommends twice-a-year maintenance (spring and fall) to keep your HVAC system operating at maximum efficiency for longer. But when you need same-day service, you can depend on us! Call 513-574-4000 or contact us if you have questions.
