    burnham pv84wt-tlwf

    I have the opportunity to buy a burnham pv84wt-tlwf that was used for half of last winter for $400. The problem is getting it out of the previous owners basement. Can it be split into 4 pieces and put back together? Is this worth it? Will an installer be willing to put it back together and then stand by it?

    Thanks for the input.

    how did they get it in the basement? this sounds like a job for a pro for sure. you could wind up spending more than it's worth when all said and done.

    Don't know. Maybe they assembled it in the basement. Or used some sort of power lift to lower it down the stairs. We are investigating the power lift dollie option.

    But, am still curious if it can be split and reassembled reliably. Obviously, the homeowner will split. Then I'd hire a professional to reassemble and install.

    This furnace is virtually new. It would be shame to miss out on it at that price.

    you will be lucky to find a "good" contractor to work on something a homeowner has split apart. real risky. you should contact a pro for the removal as well as installation.

    I would

    not take the block apart. Burnham had enough problems with the V-7 abd V-8's leaking on their own. You're just asking for trouble.
