"Clare Furnace, H.EH.B. -80 : It is very reliable and I have had it since 1996."
I have owned the furnace since the house was build in 1996. Ever since 1996, the furnace has worked really well; however, I have had to fix it a couple times, but it wasn't too expensive. I really enjoy how reliable it is and the look of it. It keeps the house warm in the winters. The only thing I disliked about it was the couple of times it had to be fixed due to it freezing in cold temperatures. I believe it had to be fixed after 6 years and then again at 10, but for going strong so many years it really isn't a problem. I would definitely recommend this brand to a friend, considering it is very reliable. Unfortunately, since it is an old model and the house is getting old, I am actually considering replacing it for a newer model. Hopefully the new one is just as reliable as this one!

"Air Conditioning with Clare"
Our furnace is 23 years old. We are very satisfied with the heating. However, my husband won't put a central air conditioner on it because it is so old. Our windows in the house are too small for a single A/C to do the whole house. Is our best option for A/C now, 2 A/C units?

"Simple machines are more reliable than complex ones."
Never had problems, yes a little noisy, never stopped working, reliable. I would buy Clare Brothers again.

"20 Warranty on Heat Exchanger"
I would like to know who covers the warranty on this furnace. I am told this company is no longer in business. The heat exchanger is cracked, I was without heat or use of the furnace since December 2010. Winter will be coming and I need this replaced. I purchased the furnace in 1997, when my new house was built. I purchased unit because of the warranty. Do I need to worry about replacing the whole furnace?

This furnace is maintenance free! Unlike the newer furnaces which I had in my other houses. Don't be fooled thinking the newer furnaces will save you money, replacing this one for a newer one won't save you money unless you live in the house for 75 years.

We have been advised that the combustion chamber in our furnace has cracked and needs to be replaced. To get the model number we have to drive about 130 miles to our cottage. Is there a chance that we can get a new combustion chamber if we provide model number? This has to be done soon, as the cottage will be snowed in.

"Does the fact that the furncae is 26 years old matter?"
WE bought this house 5 years a go & we never had any problems with our clare furnace at all is suppose to be as old as the house 26 years old from 1984 all I did was replace the filter & fan belt which helps with the loudness of the fan but that don t bother us the only question I have is can the heat exchanger be check to make sure is in good condition if anyone knows I appreciate the feedback because is the only concern I have besides that I am very pleased with this furnace people from several companies comming to the door offering financing or selling all different types of furnaces high efficiency but for $3000 & up I don t want to spend the money if what I have still works well & after reading some of the night mares some people went through with some of the newer models....

The best. I was going to replace it but a HVAV man told me not to do that. If it is working ok save your money. The new ones are NOT as reliable. This furnace is as old as the house (1977). I love my Clare Hecla furnace, an oldy but a goody.
