Any way to know which blower mower to buy to replace the one

This answer was rated:

Any way to know which blower mower to buy to replace the one in my furnace without opening up my furnace first?

oilburn62 :

You need to pull out blower to get HP and speed. It is probably 1/3HP and 1075 RPM.

Customer:

ok, so there is no way to know before hand? was hoping to order it online (i am in chicago) so it will be in Columbus, OH when I get there Saturday to replace it

Customer:

i was hoping it was safe to assume a 1/3-1/2 hp, 1075, 115V, 4 speed direct drive but didnt know if it mattered much after that (as far as a specific fit type, etc)

Customer:

hello?

Sorry would not let me reply. These motors are pretty much universal. The 1/3 Hp motor is used in probably 75% of residential units.
