While there's nothing you can do to guarantee your air conditioner or furnace will never need repairs, there are ways to take better care of your system. Changing out the air filters every 3-6 months, making sure nothing is obstructing or interfering with the outside unit, and keeping all vents unblocked in well-used rooms will help keep your air conditioning and heating system operating efficiently.
A furnace flame sensor is a device that's found in the burner assembly of your home's furnace. This thin metal rod sits directly facing the furnace's flame stream, and it tells the furnace whether ignition has occurred once the gas valve has been opened. If the gas valve has been opened and the sensor fails to detect a flame, the furnace will automatically shut down.
The most efficient heating system is going to be solar, because outside of the initial hardware costs, solar energy is free. Of course the downside is you might not live in an area with a lot of sunlight, which means you’ll need to compliment your solar power with other energy sources, like fuel or electricity, when solar power runs low. Wood stoves are the next most efficient, but you’ll need to buy wood and make a fire every day. Gas is the next most efficient, especially when gas prices are low, but they tend to fluctuate during peak usage times of the year. For pure efficiency, solar is the way to go. Regardless of what system you choose, make sure to have the proper insulation in your house to maximize heat (or cold) retention.

Solar heating is a method where the sun’s energy is collected by panels and converted to reusable energy. The sunlight collected is converted to direct current (DC) by photovoltaic cells in the panels. Then an inverter converts the DC current into alternating current (AC) and the panels send that electricity out and into your home to power things like your TV, computer, game consoles, and air conditioner. The more sunlight you have access to, the more energy you can produce. In some areas, solar powered homeowners can sell or trade the excess power they have accumulated to local power companies.

This type of furnace is fueled by liquid propane gas, which is burned to push hot air through your home. A pilot light ignites the burners within a combustion chamber, which push heat into the heat exchanger and eventually through your entire home. Repairing this type of furnace can be more expensive than its electric alternative. For example here are some common propane gas repairs and their costs:

When you change the temperature on your thermostat, or the temperature in your home drops, a signal lets the furnace's igniter know that it's time to turn on. Igniters exist in both hot water boilers and forced air furnaces, replacing pilot lights as the switch your unit needs to kick on. Naturally, this is a core part in making sure it works reliably. When it stops working, your unit will not longer know when to actually heat your home. Fortunately, furnace igniter repair doesn't tend to be a major budget problem, and costs less than $300 on average.

The cost to replace your entire unit is around $4,000. That expense can range from $2,500 to $5,900, depending on the type and brand of furnace you choose. Brands particularly have an impact on that price. A Goodman electric furnace, will only cost about $2,100 for the unit and labor. On the other hand, a Trane oil furnace may cost up to $9,000 all things considered. Our Furnace Installation Cost Guide can give you a better idea on both the general cost and the differences for brands like Amana, Bryant, Coleman, and others. The brand also plays into the repair cost for your furnace. Especially the prices of individual parts can change; a York heat exchanger, for example, can cost up to $1,900, while the same component from Heil will cost as little as $400.
