Blower Motors for Furnaces
This is the component that sends air from the furnace or air conditioner into the home.
When replacing a blower motor, costs will range from $150 to $800, depending on the brand and horsepower requirements. Furnace motors can last anywhere from 10-20 years, and it’s often difficult to find an exact replacement. There are many different brands, but if you can confirm the horsepower, RPM, voltage, number of speeds required, and mounting type, you should be able to cross reference your blower motor to another brand if needed. Because blower motors are relatively low cost, it’s typically recommended to replace the motor instead of repairing it. Repairing a furnace motor may cost several hundred dollars.
When ordering a replacement, expect 1-5 days shipping for most motors, when shipping within Canada.
Our direct drive blower motors come in 1/25 horsepower up to 1 horsepower and come in 1-5 speeds.
Condenser Fan Motors
Condenser fan motors keep HVAC compressors from overheating. It’s a part of the condensing unit and is always located outdoors. As such, it’s important to select an appropriate enclosure so that dust, dirt, and other contaminates do not enter the motor and cause damage.
When replacing a condenser fan motor, the expected cost is $130 - $1000. The price will vary depending on the horsepower required. These motors come in 1/20 horsepower up to 2 horsepower.
Pedestal Fan Motors
Sometimes referred to as yoke motors, air circulation fan motors are typically used in manufacturing facilities, hospitals, schools, warehouses, and other clean, dry, large indoor areas. A bracket or strap is attached to the motor for mounting. Pedestal fan motors are typically designed with Totally Enclosed Air Over, or Open Air Over enclosures and must be mounted in the air-steam to maintain proper operating temperatures. If they’re not mounted in the air-steam, they may overheat and fail.
Prices range from $150-$450.
Carbonator Pump Motors
These motors power hub-mounted pump applications and come with a resilient mount, meaning the motor is suspended in position with a cradle to limit vibration when the motor starts. Carbonator pump motors typically cost between $230 – $450, depending on the horsepower required. These are interchangeable with most OEM designs, making the Marathon carbonator pump motor an ideal aftermarket option.
