I have had this for 10 years. The tech wants $340 to replace the motor capaciter which measures 8.5 mfd and should be 10 mfd.

What is the percent tolerance for the capacitor? If it is still within the tolerance maybe it doesn't have to be replaced. I don't know what the percentage is supposed to be, but it seems to be 15 percent off, which likely is outside of the tolerance.

In terms of the price, it may be high (seems high), but the only way to be sure is call a couple of other VAC techs and ask them for a quote. This shouldn't be hard to do.

To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.  To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.

There are other things QuotesChimp should look at. One is the ease of making claims. Some companies make the filing of claims easy by making access to adjusting services readily available in most neighborhoods. Others make processing of claims more difficult, so be sure to ask how each company handles this all-important aspect of the insurance relationship.
