Hi, this is my 1st. post - I was directed to this site from a friend.
Later today I have an appt. with my local contractor to go over my options / pricing ect...
I have a 58MVP80 Carrier Serial # 2996A00720 that needs a new inducer motor assembly and the technician that was on the service call for that initial problem (Noise) said that the secondary heat exchanger looked to be corroded and will need to be changed out also. He did not run the furnace, he just did a visual through a small 1 1/2" X 2" hole.
When I made the appt. for today, they mentioned a rebate for the secondary heat exchanger but didnt go into details.
This is a 15 year old furnace that has worked very well.
I have Central air (Carrier / installed at the same time of this furnace).
I also have a very nice pleated air filter on this Carrier furnace, which I'm not sure is factory or an extra item, as I'm the 2nd. owner of this house and dont know what was stock and what was extra.
So my question is - Repair or replace?
f I replace - yes cost is an object - I would like to go with another Carrier - probably the Infinity 96 - pretty much like what I have now.
Thank you all for your time - chillywilly28 in Michigan
