Customer Question
Hi Phil, I have...

Hi Phil, I have an Hoco NDGK100K propane gas furnace and Im looking for a furnace to replace it in reasonable size so i dont have a lot of duct modifications to connect it. 95% would be desirable. do you have any suggestions?

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat? And what about the pilot light?

Yes we had a service tech come out and he said the heat exchanger is dead and advised a new furnace so I'm doing a little research on the easiest one plus I'm want advise on a good manufacture ....Any thoughts?

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Three wires on the thermostat and no AC
