    Depends when the "plan" took effect. Home warranties are great for having a reason as to why a piece doesn't qualify for replacement.

    That is not true anymore.

    A camera can realiably spot the cracks, I just did it about 35 mins ago.

    lifetime warranties revert to 20 year warranty if house is sold, 20 yr warranties it does not matter.

    G40DF, G40UH, G41UF, G43UF, ML180DF,
    ML180UH, ML193DF, ML193UH, ML195DF, ML195UH −−
    Twenty (20) years −− Residential Applications.

    wording from current production cheapo unit warranty document, says nothing about subsequent owners.

    if you cut any gas furnace cabinet in a place it was not designed to be cut you void all approvals and certifications on that furnace.

    you can cut out the left or right side for return openings, returns in the back of furnace are no longer allowed.

    there was a service and application note on this from Lennox years ago. #H-93-9 cabinet integrity.

    That applies to these modern furnaces. You'll notice the OP has a 25 year old G20.
    I work for the largest Lennox dealer in North America, I can tell you that Lennox has changed the terms if the warranty on the G20. They're not putting through HX warranty claims for homeowners who are not the original owner anymore.
    The warranty certificate for the G20 doesn't say anything about subsequent owners, as the warranty contract is between Lennox and the original purchaser.

    can you pm me a link to that?
    i have been a Lennox dealer since 1981 and its news to me.

    as far as the OP goes the 25 yr old G20 would have no warranty if he was original owner or not.


    i see your up in Canada so it could be policy up there.... come to think of it i don't even think we have any G20 furnaces that are less than 20 yrs old anyway.......

    I would never cut a hole in the case of a furnace to look for cracks. George write Lennox an email asking if your method is Lennox warranty approved.

    read the policy from your utility company, the one in my area does not cover HX.
    it is their "easy out", first thing they look at on service call is the HX. if its cracked they just red tag it and shut it off. they don't have to fix it then.
