Every furnace has a lifespan, in which they become worn down over time due to high usage and situational strain. In some instances, your blower motor may give out, leaving you without a functioning furnace. When this happens, most homeowners first thought is “how much is this going to cost me?”
Costs are Based On Two Main Factors
Costs can vary based on severity of the issue, installation fees, Carrier warranty and more. The motor itself only costs $65-$110, but you will most likely end up paying more than this. This article will help break down the cost factors to give you an idea of what you can expect to pay to replace your Carrier furnace motor.

If your blower motor breaks down, then your furnace is not able to blow hot air throughout your home. Many homeowners are unaware that this component of their furnace even exists. Your blower motor is strictly responsible for directing warm air from your furnace to your home. Most motors need to be oiled every year by a certified technician.

In the case that your furnace isn’t working, there are many things that could be wrong, which is why it’s important to hire an experienced and professional serviceman. There are many components to a furnace, which is why you want to ensure that someone who is trained and certified to work on furnaces is able to provide effective service. This will add to your total costs, but it ensures that the job will get done right without compromising the performance of the other components of your furnace.
In addition to the company fees of the technicians you have contracted for the job, you will need to factor in the cost of parts. In some cases, your blower motor will be covered by Carrier warranty. Be sure to check before you hire a serviceman.
