It is important to work with a company that stands behind its service. This is why our furnace repairs are backed by our “fixed right or it’s free” guarantee.
Fixed Right or It’s Free Guarantee
If one of our furnace repairs should fail during the first heating season, we will repair it again absolutely FREE. We will also return 100% of your original investment. Action Furnace: where repairs are always Fixed Right or It’s Free.
Quick Troubleshooting for Your Furnace
Make sure your thermostat is set to a temperature where the heat will come on. Your thermostat setting should be on “heat” to ensure that your thermostat alerts your furnace to run. Check that the thermostat batteries are working and replace them if needed.
When was the last time you changed your furnace filter? A dirty filter can prevent your furnace from producing and spreading heat. Change out your dirty filter for a clean filter.
Fresh Air Intake
Check that your outside venting (located on the side of your house) is clear of debris, ice, or snow to ensure the vent isn’t clogged.
Furnace Power Switch
Try resetting your furnace. There will be a light switch (on the wall or ceiling and should be marked furnace) that you’ll need to turn off for about a minute or two. Switch it back on and see if the furnace starts cycling on and resumes normal operation.
Still No Heat? No Problem! Call Action Furnace. One of our highly-trained technicians will report to your home in a fully stocked truck, quickly diagnose the problem, and give you a price before doing the work.

How Can I Prevent Heating Repairs?
While some heating repairs just can’t be avoided, annual care and maintenance can reduce the risk of unforeseen problems. Annual heating tune-ups allow our experts to assess your home’s
heating system and recommend the best steps for comprehensive care.
Investing in the health of your home’s heating system can prevent more expensive repairs from occurring. Catching problems early is always the best strategy for avoiding repairs on your
furnace or any home comfort system.
Should I Repair or Replace My Furnace?
The decision to repair or replace a furnace is always easier with the advice of an Action Furnace heating specialist. When a technician arrives, they’ll diagnose the health of your system and give
you a realistic forecast for future repairs.
Every home’s heating is unique. When you need repairs that aren’t covered under warranty, it can be a tough decision whether to replace or repair. A no-obligation estimate from an Action
Furnaces Comfort Advisor will give you all the necessary information to make an informed decision on what is right for you, your family, and your budget.
As furnaces age and their repair frequency increases, there comes a time when a new heating system will save you money in the long run.
How Much Do Repairs Cost?
Not every heating system repair is the same! The make and model of your equipment and the amount of damage done will affect repair costs. It’s difficult to price a repair service before we’ve diagnosed the problem.
But we can promise that a specialist will assess your repairs and provide a total price before beginning any work. You’ll never be surprised with extra charges or unforeseen costs. And repairs are always fixed right, or it’s free with Action Furnace!

How Often Should I Have My Furnace Serviced?
We recommended calling Action Furnace for annual furnace tune-ups, and as soon as possible if you notice any problems. This makes it easy to identify problems and solve them before they have a chance to get significantly worse.
How Often Should I Have My Furnace Serviced?
While some simple maintenance tasks (like changing your filter) can be done alone, it is not recommended to try and fix a furnace by yourself, as it requires specialized tools and knowledge. Attempting to fix your furnace by yourself can also affect its warranty, so we highly recommended hiring our licensed professional HVAC technicians for all repairs.
What should I do if my furnace is not working?
If your furnace is not working, you should first check the thermostat to ensure that it is set to the correct temperature. If the problem persists, contact Action Furnace so that we can send a qualified technician to your home to identify and solve the problem.
How Long Does It Take to Repair a Furnace?
The time it takes to repair a furnace will vary depending on the type of problem, the age and condition of the system, and the availability of parts. Most furnace repairs take between several hours and a day to complete, assuming the necessary parts do not need to be ordered from elsewhere.
What Are the Most Common Causes of Furnace Breakdowns?
The most common causes of furnace breakdowns include a lack of maintenance, dirty filters, and clogged ducts. Furnaces are also more prone to breaking down once they become older than 15-20 years, which is the average lifespan for most units.
