Why won't they fix my heater?
Posted 29 May 2006 - 08:25 PM
So, I calls a local heater repair outfit with a large yellow pages ad, and they send two guys over. They both look at my heater for a while, then instead of telling me I need this or that, retire to their van out front for about fifteen minutes.
When they return, they tell me they need to sell me a $300 maintenance contract before they can fix my furnace!
I sent them packing, but my furnace still doesn't work right. I figure I'll replace it as it is from the late 70's.

Clogged burner passages sometimes can be cleaned by a long brush but you need to correct the combustion problems causing excess soot first.
A mirror on a stick is the most useful tool for heater work followed by a flashlight.
