Another Cracked Heat Exchanger.
This older farm house 80% gas furnace has seen better days, pure and simply my customer is lucky to be alive after seeing the crack in this heat exchanger. Fortunately for them the older home has a lot of infiltration which allowed for good ventilation.
The furnace above is not a uncommon sight for technicians in Skagit County. The older farm house’s that did not have basements eventually had furnaces installed in closets within the home. This one is accessed from the living room.
As you can see above the crack is pretty obvious, and from the coloring you can tell this was a serious hot spot on the exchanger. Causing a lot of stretching and expanding as it operated, until it eventually caused a serious crack.
The new American Standard 80% single stage furnace fit right into place. For this customer a simple 80% to 80% change out is all they where after. It really does not get any simpler than this.
