Customer Question

Hello Matthew, my name is Milan.
Furnace AirEase GUKK075D14 sometimes does not start when the Controller is calling for it (HEAT ON).When 120V AC power is flipped OFF/ON furnace will start and running OK. I was told by HVAC Technician this problem might be caused by Smart valve (Honeywell SV9520 ) and suggested to replace whole furnace (total cost $ 4600) My furnace is 15 years old.

Hello, if you shop around extensively you can probably get the furnace replaced for $3,500 or less.

The problem may or may not be with the smart valve, it will take me an hour or a lot longer to step you through a diagnosis. You will need a multi meter for that.

Let me know if you are interested in that, I will submit a $40 'additional service' offer in that case.
