I was looking for the dimensions of the furnace and some technical info. Their web is designed take your money and run concept.
Location: Salt Lake City, UT
Years owned: 6
Purchase the Furnace (sp80) with our home. The original motor had zerks that needed to be oiled twice a year. 3 years ago, I forgot to oil once and the motor siezed. New motor installed two years ago, last weekend the motor starts making a very large noise everytime it starts. Technician says motor is shot, probably due to an undersized replacement being used. He recommends a new furnace (currently 14 yo)he showed me where I will most likely see my next failure,control board, then the smart valve, then the blower, etc. Not sure if I will replace the motor or the whole unit.
