“Worst” is in the eye of the beholder, especially when it comes to heating repair in Fisher, IL. We have our share of cold winters here, and any heating repair which interferes with our ability to keep warm is likely to feel like the “worst” when it happens. Objective criteria beyond that is extremely difficult, though measuring the cost of a given repair might be the best place to start. What’s the worst possible repair for a furnace? Likely the one that addresses the furnace’s complete inability to function.
In some cases, a furnace that won’t turn on is easy enough to fix. It may be caused by an improperly set thermostat, or a circuit breaker that trips after an unexpected surge. But more substantive damage can cause the furnace to turn off as well, and it will take more than a few flipped switches to fix. If the fan motor is overloaded, it may trip the circuit breakers, as can a problem in the wiring or electrical system itself.
Far more serious than that is a systematic overload of the heater itself, caused by too much strain on the system compounded by worn or overly used parts. In this case, the breakers will trip repeatedly again and again, preventing the heater from working consistently and necessitating a repair call before you can get reliable heat again. Circumstances vary, but if the heater itself is more than ten years old, you may need to replace the entire unit, instead of just repairing or replacing individual components within it.
The worst possible repair for a furnace doesn’t matter as much as the person you call to make repairs. If your service technician is qualified and trustworthy, he’ll discuss all the options with you before going forward and look for ways to mitigate the cost if he feels the issue can still be addressed.
