  • The size of your home.
  • The type of HVAC unit you have installed.
  • The cost to remove your current HVAC unit and install the new unit.

How much does it cost to replace an AC capacitor near Columbus, OH?

Why is my furnace running but not blowing hot air near Columbus?

The thermostat is most likely the source of the problem. Focus your initial root cause analysis here because you have the best chance of resolving the issue without calling in a professional.

First, ensure that the fan is not set to "on." If your fan is set to steadily blow, it will eventually blow cold air. If your fan is set to "on" at all times, it will blow cold air during the furnace's idle time. Set your fan to "auto" to sync it with the furnace, and you'll only have hot air blowing, not cold.

Another simple problem with your thermostat is a low or dead battery. However, thermostat batteries last a long time, so if your thermostat is old, this is more likely to be a problem. Inspect the batteries before calling an HVAC professional, and you might help in saving yourself some money.

How much does a furnace diagnostic cost near Columbus?

A furnace tune-up service typically costs between $70 and $200 for a gas, electric, or oil furnace. A standard furnace inspection costs between $70 and $130, which includes a diagnostic report and basic cleaning. An annual furnace tune-up and inspection costs $150 to $500.

What is the fastest way to improve air quality in a home near Columbus?

Ventilation and air exchange are important components of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system that help maintain clean air. You should keep an eye on the ventilation in your home. 

First, examine the outdoor vents. The outside vents must be open for this to happen. Inspect your system on a regular basis to ensure that it is operating properly and that the vents are open. ‌

Also, maintain the cleanliness of return air vents inside. The air quality in your home is also affected by the vents inside your home. Return air vents are the large vents on your wall that pull your indoor air back to your heating and cooling system. Change or clean the filters every month.

Review
My experience with the Sears team has been excellent! I first learned about Sears through my next-door neighbor who has a recent full HVAC install. My neighbor also shared her Mother and Dad have been customers since the 1950's. It is this strong devotion to excellent customer service and professionalism that has kept my neighbor and her family coming back to Sears year after year! Service after the sale is not dead with this organization! I had been having some crazy high bills over the years even before the recent Columbia Gas rate hikes and grew even more concerned over the years when I began to have strange symptoms whenever I was at home. I always felt better away from my home when I was working at the hospital. I now believe it has been low-grade symptoms of CO poisoning- as a healthcare provider I should have put this together sooner! My tech Josh was immediately able to diagnose a cracked heat exchanger that when damaged can leak CO into living spaces or start a fire. He also discovered the capacitance system is below specifications due to poor install from another company- another efficiency and safety hazard. Josh basically with his detective work saved my life from CO poisoning and possible fire as the units in my building had NEVER been serviced by the owner since 1999 install. I am so deeply grateful to Josh and his company. Also, all of my work with the office team and even VP Bryan Meier has been deeply satisfying. This is a company and team that simply loves what they do with a team they love as family- I even feel like they treated me as a family member. If I could give all the stars from heaven for this review I would do it!

The furnace part replaced costs only $25 at most, but Cody charged me $269 plus $79 for coming in to check the problem. This is highway robbery!
Frank - Columbus, OH 43229
Response from Sears Heating & Cooling:

Hi Frank-I'm sorry you feel this way. The price you paid is the cost for us to send a fully licensed and trained tech in a fully stocked truck (on a weekend no less) to your home to fix your furnace. You could have declined the price if you did not agree with it. If we only charged $25 for a repair, we would not be able to pay employees let alone offer them healthcare for them and their families. I would encourage you to call around to other local HVAC companies and compare pricing as I assure you that we are competitive, otherwise we would not still be in business after 72 years. The cost you paid covers the parts, labor, company overhead and a 10% profit. I think 10% profit is fair for the service we provide. Thanks for your comments and we wish you the best in finding another HVAC company that suits your needs.

Josh arrived at the time he said he would. He was very nice and professional. He did a good job explaining what was wrong with my AC and fixed it in a very timely fashion.
