Replacing a failed blower motor is a major furnace repair and is one of the more expensive repairs homeowners face as their furnace gets older. Below we break down the average cost to replace a furnace blower motor for a Denver homeowner and why the price varies furnace-to-furnace, company-to-company.
Cost to Replace Blower Motor in Denver
The cost to replace your blower motor depends on whether your blower motor is variable-speed or single-speed, the brand of your furnace, and the repair company you hire to handle the repair for you. Unless you have a warranty for your unit, you can expect to pay anywhere from $1,000 to as much as $1,600 for a furnace blower motor replacement.
If a company tries to charge you less, they aren’t giving you all the benefits you get with the top companies in town. When you replace the blower motor in your furnace, the HVAC technician should replace the capacitor as well. A company that quotes $750 may not be including the additional $300 – $400 for the capacitor that needs to be replaced as well. Always make sure you get the complete quote upfront so you don’t get hit with an unexpected charge. As always, we recommend Denver homeowners work with an established HVAC company to ensure an honest and reliable repair.
National Replacement Averages
Larger websites like HomeAdvisor will give low quotes to pique your interest and give some business to the companies that use their site. These prices are very generic, typically don’t include every single charge that would come with a repair and are not based on your specific city. From the quality of the technician to the quality of service, paying more than these low national averages is for good reason. Long story short, you will not find a successful and reputable HVAC company charge these low prices.
Just Hire the Good Guys
When you find yourself getting quotes from several companies for a blower motor replacement, always ask if the estimate includes a capacitor replacement. If a company is unable to share a quote over the phone, not to worry, they may need to see the furnace in-person. Just make sure to get the full quote before they go to work.
