Furnace Blower Motor Replacement Cost: Do Your Research

The replacement cost of a furnace blower motor will vary depending on a number of unique variables. Make sure that you understand what these variables are when determining the best option for replacing your furnace blower. The cost to replace the furnace blower motor is, in part, based on where you live.

As with all things, the cost of goods and services on the East and West Coast can vary widely from what you would pay in the Midwest. The best way to understand the best deal is to do your research.

If you belong to a social networking site, it would be a good idea to post a comment looking for advice and a qualified referral. Someone in your social network may be able to help you directly or recommend a service technician that you will be able to trust. If you do not belong to a social networking site, try asking around at work or calling a friend or relative that may understand the situation better than you.

When it comes to the actual cost of replacing the blower motor in your furnace, there are a few key components to keep in mind. First of all, do not forget that the blower motor will also have to work with your air conditioner in the summertime. Generally this will require a different speed setting than you use for the furnace. Make sure that whatever replacement motor you buy is able to handle the workload of your home year round. Also make sure that you understand the horsepower requirements for the size of your home, especially if you have added an addition since the last time the blower motor was changed.

Finally, if you are not going to do the replacement yourself (and I don’t recommend this if you do not know what you are doing) find a service technician. He or she will explain all the costs to replace a blower motor on the furnace and do the job right.
