M Oglesby :

Hello I am here to assist you.

M Oglesby :

There are two kinds of limit switches on your furnace.

M Oglesby :

The first is the Main Limit Switch. It cost about $40

M Oglesby :

The second is a Manual Reset Rollout Limit Switch. It cost about $25

M Oglesby :

It takes 10 min. to change either one of them.

M Oglesby :

I have no information on which Bryant Furnace is the most reliable.

Customer:

10 min?

M Oglesby :

Yes 10 min.

M Oglesby :

Please hit ACCEPT if you are satisfied with this answer.

Customer:

how complex is repair, please

M Oglesby :

Very easy. Not complex at all.

M Oglesby :

Just remove 2 screws and pull the limit switch out and put the new one in and replace the two screws.

M Oglesby :

Please hit ACCEPT if you are satisfied with this answer. Bonuses and positive feedback are very much appreciated!

Customer:

I have called authorized Bryant distributor, who wants to charge $200 flat fee for the part and to replace

M Oglesby :

That is typically what any technician will charge to replace it.

M Oglesby :

That price is competitive unfortunately.

Customer:

You just said 10 min

M Oglesby :

I know.

Customer:

And Bryant said hour and half

M Oglesby :

They exagerated.

Customer:

One more question - if I press 'accept' and my credit card is charged

Customer:

what is the charge going to be shown as - what name/vendor?

M Oglesby :

$9 Just Answer

Customer:

Do you have any advice as to how to bargain for the labor of 1 1/2 hours for actual 10 min work?

M Oglesby :

Also it does take a little time to verify that the Limit Switch is the problem.

M Oglesby :

Offer him $150

M Oglesby :

He may go for it.

Customer:

I have paid $98 to know what is wrong

Customer:

just to come in and check the furnace was $98

M Oglesby :

Did the technician show you where the limit is located?

Customer:

yes - he did

M Oglesby :

Why don't you replace it yourself?

Customer:

i would rather not replace on my own - for safety

M Oglesby :

Save your self $150

Customer:

Hello?

M Oglesby :

Hello

M Oglesby :

You can get the limit switch here at www.AmericanHVACparts.com

M Oglesby :

Just have model number and serial number of furnace ready when ordering.

Customer:

Can we ask any HVAC technician to replace it then?

M Oglesby :

Sure

Customer:

Many thanks - I appreciate your help.

M Oglesby :

You are welcome.

M Oglesby :

Bonuses are appreciated!
