Our furnace has decided to retire. Now, we've called two local repair guys with good reputations, but they haven't even taken the time to call back to set up an appointment even though I've called each one 2-3 times over the last 4 weeks. :shrug: Seems they are still busy installing new furnaces to all the homes affected by the flood in June. So, DH has tried to diagnose/repair the thing himself and he's concluded that it's probably a cracked combustion chamber. Now, can anyone give me the bad news? My google search didn't tell me what I need to know... what's the cost of a new oil forced hot air furnace for a 1000 sq ft two story house?
