Thanks. I know I have seen rates of around $125 / hr for experienced techs and perhaps this is a 4 hour job? Since this unit is brand new...I have not even had any other techs look at it.
Also, do the symptoms of this issue appear to be consistent with a Smart Valve unit like this? Perhpas a common problem with Honeywells?
Thanks again for your help.
The pilot seems to be working OK and the igniter as well. When the unit turns on the igniter fires up (glows) but the tech determined the signal going back to the Smart Valve to open the gas lines is not working properly. He did note, that the configuration is somewhat unique in that it is a combination of a pilot and electronic sensor to light the gas (I think).
The Furnace is a Heil and I believe the model number is XXXXX a 90+ Single Stage N9MP1 or N9MP2, Category IV Furnace. But I think it is a *2 because there are two exhaust pipes coming out.
The Smart Valve is a SV9541 unit.
I am actually at the office right now, so can't take a closer look yet. Hope to review later this afternoon.
