I suppose you can buy one wherever the service people buy them (or maybe
online). I don't know about HD, because I never needed to look for one.
It's called a gas analyzer.
When you find out the price ($$$), you probably will decide you don't

Thanks for all the responses. Now the big giant thing with all those
shileded wires under the burners next to the filter is the blower? Or
just the blower motor? Ok, where exactly is the blower? If it is not
in that area on the bottom of the furnace next to the filter, he may
have already cleaned it. He didn't do anything in the bottom area
except remove the really dirty and old filter.
Now to check the chimney for blockage,, will he have to get into the
attic, or just climb the roof ?
You seem to expect an awful lot. If you want the entire system to be
restored to like new condition, as opposed to getting it running
safely and reasonably well (given its age), then you should expect to
pay for many more hours of labor.
Its easy for us to sit here and think up more things the tech could
have done, but each of these adds to the costs.
At this point, it would be reasonable to start planning for a new
system. Nothing lasts forever, and the energy savings alone may
justify installing a new higher efficiency system. This is something
you need to discuss with a tech who isn't a crook, and I think you
have found him.

I only expected the blower to work. I was very satified with the work
and had a question about the sequence/cycle. Now based on a response
from another thread, I was under the impression that I was in danger.
As you said, I want it to run safely and reasonably well. If the
blower second run while the burner is out is not dangerous, I'll leave
