The power venter has been dying for a couple weeks. We have one of those insurance programs for major appliances, so I called them to send an HVAC company take a look.
Well, first of all they said the ventilation system for the furnace was not covered. Then I was told it would cost me over $550 to have it fixed and I don't have that money available I decided to track down the replacement parts and fix it myself
Now here comes the part where I don't know whether to be happy or mad as heck! The replacement motor and fan cost me $150. The replacement involved removing about 4 screws and disconnecting 3 wires. Had the new unit in in less than 30 minutes! So, in theory I did $400 worth of work in 30 minutes. I'm not factoring in the time to go get the part because it was on my way home from work. I apologize to any of you who are in the HVAC business, but WHAT A RIPOFF! Like I said, I'm glad I know a little. Most people would accept the price because they don't know any better!
Sorry for the rant
