A New Furnace

Yet another one. I think we’ve replaced 3 or 4 furnaces in CO at different places. My tenant called on Sun night saying his wasn’t working. It was cool, so I guess he was using it, or trying to. I got a call back this morning from the furnace guy: cracked heat exchanger.

$1900 to fix, with other parts likely to break in the next year or two, or $3100 to replace it.

It seems that all of our rentals heard similar warnings when we had them inspected. The furnaces were old, get ready for them to go at some point. Apparently this one, our first rental, finally went. The only good thing is that the furnace was too big, so they can replace with a smaller, slightly cheaper one.
