Heat exchangers are not a DYI type of repair.Recommend having it done by someone with experience.

as mentioned its not a diy project...this has to be ordered from mfg... in most cases has to be a licensed contractor to recieve this part...and yes it is a major job......like a heart transplant.......consider new furnace...ben sr

The PGAD is a package unit, much easier to replace in most cases than a furnace. Is it on a roof, or on the ground?
