Carrier - Blower motor replacement cost

8 years ago

Hello.. Our furnace stopped working this week, makes a loud noise when turned on. Called a hvac technician and he identified that the blower motor needs to be replaced. It is burnt out (were his words). We have a Carrier furnace and the model number is 58cva070. The technician gave an estimate of 1200$ for the new blower motor. I searched on the web to find the cost of the part but found motor parts that were between 150 - 500$. I need help in understanding the furnace repair costs -
1. How do I find the blower motor specs for my furnace, should I buy a carrier brand or a generic brand?
2. How do I get a good deal on the motor
3. How do I make sure the issue is with the motor?

Thanks in advance,
