Customer Question

I understand that the Honeywell fireplace remote controlis NLA. Do you know of an authorized replacement for control # ***** 8220A

Contractor's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

We have a Lennox gas fireplace and the remote is no longer accurate. It is about 12 years old. FCC ID: HS9-RT 8220A-2

Contractor's Assistant: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to HVAC Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?

Yes, the control is working. Therre is no rush.

This is almost like trying to find gold. The remote is obsolete and when you do find one it is outrageous. Below is an Ebay auction for one used, but already over 400 bucks with 12 hrs left on auction.If interested, and willing to pay that price, might want to act quick to get a bid in.
