I have a 15yr old comfortmaker gas furnace and I just had a service man here for cleaning. He found some rust spots on the exchanger and showed them to me. He also claimed to be able to feel the gasses in his throat while it was running. He said it was a very unsafe situation and siad he will come right away Monday to replace it.
I bought a new CO detector and put it right in the furnace room and it records absolutely ZERO! Just to make sure it worked I put it in the garage and started the car and yep it wrks right away!
My question is b4 I spent 2500 on a new furnace are rust spots on the exchager ok?
I know it wont last forever but I truly do not see where the rust has caused a hole in the exchanger and the CO detector is within 2 feet from the furnace and says zero. Is this an emergency or something to keep an eye on? I do have 4 children and dont want any undue risk but do not want to be taken either.
Thanks in advance--he is comming on monday!
