    close your windows.(just kidding)

    30 yrs. is a good life for a furnace, i wouldn't want to be paying your bills.

    alot can happen to a 30 yr.old furnace in 2 months,kind of like a 90 year old person, you just never know.

    i'd recommend calling a tech back out. hopefully it's something inexpensive to fix, but you should consider getting an estimate for a newer higher efficient model.

    good luck

    Ah, calling for estimates. That is something that I am good at.........

    Sorry, caps were all on for registration to the site...


    I will call the man back, ty. Any idea what the general run of a new furnace is and what brand I might look for?

    No one is allowed to discuss pricing around here!
    Miller (Nordyne) has a 90+ furnace now on the market.
    Even if you stick with the 80% mobile home furnaces you will most likely need to have the roofjack and the furnace base replaced when the furnace is changed out. Did whoever you had in your home, check the heat exchanger thoroughly for cracks/pitting?
