I am a homeowner (non HVAC guy) in Texas and have been fighting with my Lennox natural gas heater for some time. I have had a tech out twice and he finally recommended a new unit (the pilot igniter is intermittant and the gas never comes on).
I have a friend (this is usually the beginning of a bad story...) who just replaced his HVAC -propane furnace and compressor that was only 2 years old due to a large addition on his home. He heard I was experiencing problems with my furnace and offered to give me his Ruud furnace. I don't want to go to the trouble of picking his unit up is this is something that won't work with the Lennox compressor or will cost me more money than a new unit.
I will contact our local HVAC guy to do the install when he is back in town. But I would like to know if this is something that is possible.
