I have a Carrier Weathermaker SXi gas furnance, 17 years old. It is currently working, but we noticed a few months ago error code 44. A call to our service provider resulted in their recco to think about buying a new furnance due to expense of repair, and lack of availability of parts. It continued to work OK thru the winter in Cincinnati, OH. A few times it seemed to lock out and needed to be reset to start again. But then kept working.
Now that it's Spring, should we just fahgetaboutit and hope for the best this winter (and risk an "emergency" replacement) - or should we shop around to find a good deal and get it replaced Now when heat is not as important. (And if so, any reccos on what we should look at?)
Thanks for your help, advice.
