Are you there?
Hi Tim, yes I'm here. I just want to know how old this Rheem furnace is.
This furnace is from the 20th week of 1983. It's 30 years old!!
It should be replaced.
Besides having the potential of being unsafe, it is not efficient
Thank you. I'm not insane. Could you give me an estimate on a newer furnace the same size?
Installed about $3200

Yes I do have additional questions. I was uncertain about the additional cost. The other questions included verification of the contractor's license #201263130400CL fourteen characters. I’ve checked with 4 different “qualified” sources i.e. master plumber, city and county officials and to say the least—it may be a permit? At the bare minimum, the company does have a license through Aurora, CO. The other question was relating to the lifespan of Federal Pacific Electric Panel which is as old as the furnace. At least I have verified the company—Colorado Quality HVAC—holds a license in Aurora, CO but the owner, Mark Yeager remains a mystery. The property owner and both realtors (hers and mine) are unyielding and standing firm on this being a great deal... conflict of interest? lawyer? HOW OLD IS YOUR FURNACE? ELECTRICAL PANEL?
More than likely I'll be replacing both. I've mentioned all of the above. A contract is signed, the Home Inspection is performed. The Inspection Objection is submitted. The seller refuses to fix anything. The opposing real estate agents are in opposition with... you. They want to get on with the next deal because they feel enough time has been spent on the current one.
What are the QUALIFICATIONS i.e. time as apprentice, journeyman, of a HVAC expert? The contract reads "the seller must have a licensed and insured professional... service the HVAC."
What is sufficient proof the HVAC Serviceman was "licensed and insured.." while you're sitting at the closing table? and
Is that a good reason for a lawyer to be at a closing?
...last ? NATE means what
