We purchased an Olsen mid efficiency furnace approx. 10 years ago and for the first one or two years it worked fine. Since then, we have had to put approx. $600.00 to $700.00 yearly into it, in repairs. I have talked to a number of heating contractors here and they have all told ne that these furnaces are one of the worst on the market. If we would have known this before, we would never have purchased this furnace and be assured that we will never ever buy another Olsen product or recommend them to anyone.

This combination wood-oil furnace has just been inspected and given a clean bill of health. Service technician etimated at least another ten years of life left in unit. I burn 90% white birch split in half, most bark removed. During cold snaps (minus 20 or colder) maple is used for night wood. The heat exchanger and breeching are cleaned monthly. Chimney (tile lined) as required. The unit has been trouble free except for replacement of blower motor.

We built a brand new home in 1994 and had an Airco furnace installed (Not our choice, but the builder's, who assured us it was a great furnace). Nothing but problems with it for 12 years. I cannot even rememeber how many times we've lost heat due to some mechanical problems with this unit. Piece of junk. Airco has ignored our letters and complaints, don't doubt you will too.
