I've got a gas Lennox Complete Heat system that was installed in 1998 and YES it is still working fine. But, I know I will need to replace it at some point since it is an orphan design. I have two questions:

1) I know if it stops working I will need a new heating system and hot water system. I was going to get some bids but, Hurricane Sandy hit our area and I expect the dealers and installers will be swamped with new installs for those flooded houses and product supply may be tight. Should I wait to get estimates until after things calm down a bit?

2) The Complete Heat is still working fine. Is there a market for some of it's components or should I just separate out the copper and other metals and bring in to a scrap metal recycler for the cash?
