Repair or Replace 13 yr old Furnace with Cracked Heat Exchanger


Is there more than 1 Lennox dealer in your area? My co charges $600 -$800 to change a heat ex. If you can find someone for under $800 then it is worth repairing. Prices vary a LOT all over the country(s) depending on your local cost of living. You can also get a modulating furnace from all the major manufacturers so pinpoint sizing is not always paramount. For ex. one brand has a mod unit that fires 35 and 70 and 100%. Takes 17 mins B4 it goes to 100% so it goes there less than 10% of the season. At 70,000 BTU you do the maths for the lower 2 inputs and it is really what you need. Lot more comfortable too.
