Hello,

My name is Billy. In order for the warranty to apply, get parts or other service all work is to be done by Carrier approved mechanical contractors. This is mainly a liability issue. Afterall we are talking about the main component where combustion and carbon monoxide occur. In order to replace furnace or exchanger will need have a licensed contractor to assume the liability

Did you want to do this yourself?
