System is propane. We had two different service calls after primary was installed because of the failure of the system to stay fired up. The tech stated that the secondary was cracked and showed me with a set of mirrows after he had taken blower motor out. The system is building up condensation and soot.
I feel if the secondary system had to be removed to gain access to the primary that some damage could have been done then. The techs have been trying to sell me with a new unit or heatpump. They said that they could get the secondary within a week and install it the same day. How much time does it take to install the seconday. They charged me 6 hours for the primary. I don't want to throw my money away on a new system-times are tight. The secondary will come with a 5 year warrante on the part.
The question is did they have to remove the secondary to get at the primary?
What is your guesstimate on the amount of time to install the secondary?
With what has been done so far do you think I should wait until the summer to think about new and have the secondary replaced?
