On a side note, I couldn't be happier with the new furnace. The peace of mind it offered was well worth it, and the job wasn't nearly as bad as I made it sound. I picked up a new Olympian Wave 6 catalytic heater as well. No more freezing cabin, no more CO dumping into the cabin, no more furnace pilot.
So you have a new furnace AND the Olympian? I think this might be the way to go for us since we will probably be in the high country here in CO and need all the heat we can get. Also the loss of decent oxygen at 9k feet. Thanks for the help

I see you bumped up in BTU's. Would you recommend that for my NT30A? Nice pictures of the replacement.

Furnace NT 30 Replacement

Just replaced my NT22 with the 30SP. For the record I've noticed many posts here where we try to save a buck and repair or troubleshoot the old furnaces but in the end replacement is the best and in most cases the only answer.

I just replaced my NT30A with a NT30SP. Sleeping with my 4 year old in the AS is not something to take a chance on with a 38 year old furnace.
