Our gas company refused to turn on our gas because the chimney needs a liner. Is this something they can refuse just because of a liner? The home is over 100 years old and it may need a liner or new furnace but I don’t think this is an emergency. The chimney is not leaking.
Can anyone tell me how old my furnace is? It’s an Armstrong gas forced air, model G531400 4AE37, Input: 140,000 (BTU rating?), Bonnet Cap: 112,000, Ser #R110287.
If I do need a liner, my decision will be to install a liner for $xxx or to install a new furnace that vents directly outside through a side wall and not vent through the chimney. I don’t want to spend a lot of money on a liner only to replace the furnace in a year or two. Any educated opinions? Thanks!
