This is the second winter in my house so I figured I would have the furnace
cleaned and tuned up. Boy was I wrong because this tune-up ended with the
technician finding cracks in the heat exchanger. As you may know by law
they are required to lock the unit out which he did. Of course all of this
wonderful news occurs on a nice wintry day. What was even better is that I
have an infant in the house. I seen the cracks on the camera and I
understand that this is a safety issue as well as a liability issue for the
technician. Although I have some doubts on the seriousness of the cracks as
they did not look very bad. I have a CO2 detector above the furnace, on the
first floor, and one in each of the bedrooms and they have never went off.
However, as he explained a crack is a crack and nonetheless this forced me
into a situation of an immediate replacement as I was not going to waste the
money on replacing the heat exchanger on a 15 year old unit. Sorry for
the rant ...
Now I am trying to sort through exactly what I bought - the unit that I had
installed is a Xenon unit which appears to be manufactured by York (even
confirmed by the tech that york builds these). Does anyone know anything
about these units. Here is the relevant info on it.
It has two model numbers:
Model #1: G1FA036S17G
Model #2: XYF90080BU3-AB
Manufactured at 5005 York Drive Norman OK 73069.
