Gas, Oil & Electric Furnace Services

There are three main types of furnaces—and Jack Lehr offers all three to homeowners in Pennsylvania:

  • Gas: Gas furnaces work by converting heat to gas and are the preferred choice for many homeowners today due to their high energy efficiency. If you want to convert your oil furnace to gas, the Jack Lehr team can handle it.
  • Oil: Oil furnaces use petroleum-based fuels (similar to diesel) to create heat. We can also offer oil furnace replacement alternatives to lower operating costs.
  • Electric: Heating your home with an electric furnace is often more cost-effective than using an oil furnace for our customers in the Greater Lehigh Valley.

Whether you need oil furnace service or gas furnace service or would like to replace an electric furnace, we can help! Call 888-454-7365 today.

Furnace FAQs

At Jack Lehr Heating, Cooling & Electric, we offer a full list of furnace services to our customers, and over the years we have heard a lot of questions about furnaces, repair, and maintenance. We want you to have full confidence when you hire us for your furnace repair needs. Here are some common questions and the answers from our experienced, knowledgeable, and professional HVAC technicians.

How much does it cost to repair a furnace?

The cost to repair a furnace is going to vary based on the type of problem. The national average for furnace repair is $295, but this can range from a simple $60 fix all the way to a major $1,020 repair. You will pay for both the parts to do the repair and the labor costs for your technician’s help.

Can a furnace be repaired?

Many problems with a furnace can be repaired. However, sometimes replacement is the most cost-effective option, and only a professional HVAC technician can evaluate this accurately. If your furnace is not working as it should, reach out to one of our technicians for an honest evaluation.

What does it mean to have your furnace serviced?

A furnace service appointment is a maintenance appointment that involves checking the entire furnace inside and out to ensure it is working properly. At a furnace service appointment, a technician will also clean all components of the system, change the air filter, examine parts for signs of wear and tear, remove blockages on air intake and condensation drain systems, lubricate moving parts, and inspect the thermostat. After your furnace tune-up, you will be left with a properly functioning and optimized furnace to enjoy.

Is a furnace leaking water dangerous?

A leak from your furnace indicates it needs repair, but this is not usually a dangerous situation. The most common cause is a condensation leak, which can be due to problems with the condensation line or a clog in the condensation drain. Address the problem to get the furnace running properly again.

How do I know if my furnace needs repairs?

Furnaces that are not evenly heating the home often need repair. Other signs that you may need to invest in furnace repair include unusual sounds and banging, unusual smells, short cycling, and leaks from the furnace. Of course, if the furnace stops working altogether, it is a clear sign it needs to be repaired or replaced.

Does my furnace need regular maintenance?

Yes, a furnace should be maintained at a minimum once per year. A furnace maintenance appointment involves a thorough check of all of the components and moving parts of the furnace. This optimizes the furnace’s performance and reduces the risk of serious repairs.

Can I repair my furnace myself?

No, because furnaces are complex pieces of equipment, they require the attention of a professional. Trying to DIY your furnace repair can leave your home at risk for serious damage due to electrical problems or fire, or DIY repairs can hurt your furnace and cause you to need to replace it.
