Furnace combustion chamber replacement
I had my oil company's tech come out to do a cleaning on the furnace.
He pulled the combustion chamber only to find a gaping hole burned thru it.
Quoted me $621 for part and install. Sound reasonable?
The furnace is a Hallmark. Honestly this looks like something I could do myself.
Does anyone know of a part supplier for Hallmark furnaces? Other recommendations?
This seems reasonable to me.
Part is probably $300-$400 (guessing based on previous experience). His cost to put it in is probably $100-$200.
I charge $125 for a service call.
I'm surprised he didn't shut it down as this is a CO problem and is potentially dangerous and could cause death.
Then again I know firefighters who underestimate CO so I guess a furnace person is not expected to understand that.
a combustion chamber and heat exchanger are two different things-
if you continue to run the furnace with a hole in the chamber it will eventually burn thru the exchanger, then co will be an issue.
don't run your furnace, you will save yourself a much bigger repair bill-
the price to replace the chamber is right in line with what our company would charge-
