How Much are Carrier Furnace Replacement Parts in Edmonton?


Replacement parts for Carrier furnaces can have a wide range of prices. In this article, we will attempt to list the prices of the most common and main components of the Carrier furnace.

Note: All prices are in Canadian dollars and does not include dispatch, diagnosis and installation fees. Also, this is only a rough guide based on our extensive experience servicing hundreds of Carrier furnaces in Edmonton, Alberta.

JW Brian Plumbing & Heating does not supply replacement components for furnaces to the general public, only as part of our repair service.

Blower Motor


The blower motor on your furnace is responsible for turning the fan to circulate the warm air out of the furnace into your home. Blower motors on a Carrier furnace can range from as low as $300 to $1200 for an ECM motor, depending on your model.

Draft Inducer


The draft inducer is a fan that removes the gases created from the combustion process in your furnace. Like the blower motor, the Carrier draft inducer can have a wide price range, from as low as $250.00 to as high as $900, once again depending on your model.

Control Board (motherboard)


The control board on a furnace is a circuit board that controls the operation of your furnace. A Carrier control board or as some call it, the motherboard, can range in price from $300.00 to $800.00; depending on your model.

Gas Valve (combination gas control valve)


The gas valve or combination gas control valve opens and closes when there is a call for heat. The Carrier gas valves vary widely in price range, from $300 to $600, depending on your model.

Pressure Switch


The pressure switch on your furnace is a safety device that detects the wrong pressure in your vent system preventing the furnace from operating when there is a issue. Carrier pressure switches, depending on your model, vary in price from $50.00 to $150.00.

Heat Exchangers


The heat exchanger on your furnace exchanges the heat from your furnace to the air in your home. There are two types of heat exchangers, each with their own price tag:

  1. High efficient – $500.00 to $1,000.00
  2. Mid-efficient – $300.00 to $800.00

Pilot Assembly


On older furnaces, you may have a standing pilot. The pilot assembly is the thermocouple and pilot orifice. The price can range from $100.00 to $250.00.

Hot Surface Ignitor


On modern furnaces, they have done away with a pilot light and installed a device that heats up red hot to ignite the gases when the gas valve is turned on.They range in price from $80.00 to $150.00.

Flame Sensor


The flame sensor on your furnace detects the burners are in fact burning the gas. It is a safety device, shutting down the furnace when the gas valve is releasing gas but not burning. Prices can from $25.00 to $50.00.

High Limit Switch


The high limit switch is another safety device that shuts the furnace down when it detects over heating of the furnace. Prices range from $25.00 to $75.00

Flame Rollout Switch


The flame rollout switch detects flames rolling out from the combustion chamber, shutting the furnace down when it detects this unsafe problem. Priced from $15.00 to $25.00.

Condensate Pump


The condensate pump discharges the condensate from high efficient furnaces to a place of disposal when there is not a floor drain available. Prices range from $150.00 to $250.00.

How Much Does it Cost to Repair a Furnace in Edmonton?

Tips and Advice

How Much Does it Cost to Repair a Furnace in Edmonton?


Plain and simple, if you live in Edmonton it’s nearly impossible to live without a working, reliable furnace in your home. We might not need heat during the warmer summers months from May to August, but come September it’s an absolute necessity; especially when temperatures dip to below 0°C.

Here at JW Brian Plumbing & Heating, we’ve diagnosed and repaired hundreds of furnaces in the Edmonton and surrounding area on all makes and models.

To help prepare you for the day that your furnace is suddenly rattling or fails to produce heat,  we’d like to share some of our relevant knowledge on this topic. Through this guide, we will answer one of the most common questions customers ask us: “how much will it cost to fix my furnace?”.

As you’ll see below, there are a number of variables that will determine the final cost of a furnace repair. We will attempt here to give a reasonable approximation so at the very least you’ll have some idea of what to expect.

Note: the below cost approximations are based upon our experience and proven track record of servicing hundreds of furnaces in Edmonton, Alberta. Although we stand by these figures, the final cost may vary depending on the contractor you hire.

The average cost to repair a furnace in Edmonton

In our experience the average cost to repair a furnace in Edmonton ranges from $300.00 to $1,500.00 and averages out to around $700.00.

This is influenced by several factors which we will break down further below.

  1. Dispatch and diagnostic fee.
  2. The age, brand, & model of your furnace.
  3. Cost of labour.
  4. Cost of replacement components.

1. Diagnostic fee

All legit companies who offer furnace repair services will have a dispatch and diagnostic fee of some type. These fees are to cover the cost of doing business and vary between companies. Please call 780-249-1496 for our dispatch and diagnostic fees.

2. The age, brand & model of your furnace

The age, brand & model will influence the cost of repair. Concerning age, we have found a simple rule-of-thumb applies: older furnaces tend to be more affordable to repair than newer furnaces. This is due to the fact that the components for older furnaces are old technology, while newer furnaces use higher tech components that are more expensive to replace.

As well , the brand of your furnace will influence the cost of the replacement components. The more common brands in Edmonton are: LennoxCarrierGoodmanTrane, and York.

3. Cost of Labour

In addition to the age, brand & model of your furnace, it’s important to consider the contractor’s cost of labour. Due to the rate variance between contractors in Edmonton, you’ll likely need to do some research and asking around to find more information on installation fees.

4. Cost of replacement components

Furnaces are built to last and with proper maintenance and care should provide years of service , but there is no denying some components will wear out and need to be replaced in time.

Pinpointing the affecting issue in a broken furnace can be daunting without professional help.

Up until now, we’ve covered three factors in determining the approximate cost to repair a furnace. The final determining factor is the actual cost of the defective component that is preventing your furnace from working as it should.

Outlined below are 4 of the more common components we replace in the Edmonton area and they’re approximate costs.

  1. Draft inducer – the draft inducer is essentially a small fan that pulls the products of combustion through the heat exchanger. Draft inducers typically cost between $400.00 and $900.00.
  2. Blower motor – implied within the name, the blower motor pushes and circulates hot air from the furnace into your home over the heat exchanger. The cost for this component is $400.00 – $1,500.00.
  3. Control Board – the control board is the furnace’s computer controlling its functions. They range in price from $300 to $900
  4. Gas valves – the gas valve regulates and controls the flow of gas to the burners, and are integral to the appliance’s performance. There are various types of gas valves, the cost of this component is from $400.00 to $1,000.00.
