  • What would you do? The furnace is in a crawlspace (not the smallest, and it's clean, but it will add to the PIA factor being in there vs. in an open basement area) and long story short, our issue is the seal around the heat exchanger.

    HVAC co. says Trane says it is not a replaceable part and they will send a replacement heat exchanger for free. Trouble is, I'm told removing and replaceing a heat exchanger is "thousands of dollars" and it is a better value to replace the furnace.

    Furnace is 9 years old.

    Being offered replacement of furnace at cost of $6785 w/Trane XL-95

    I'd like to know if anyone with a lot more HVAC knowledge than I've gleaned from the internet can tell me if what our HVAC guy says is accurate and if the price is within a range of normal.

    They also could do the replacement Monday.

    It's a lot of money, but we need heat. (Not the only furnace in the house, btw, so we won't freeze/no plumbing at risk.)

      Sorry, forgot to say that this furnace is an American Standard Freedom 90 100K BTU. Also, sorry about putting the price quote before - not sure how to delete it. I posted before noticing the instructions about not posting pricing.
