: I am looking for parts for Glow Core boilers. Does anyone know who might carry them, or how to contact the company?
I would worry less about finding the parts than paying for them. I have finally thrown in the towel on my glowcore. I love the unit when it runs but I figure my maintenance has averaged about a hundred dollars a month over the eight or so years. Blowers started at about $600 and I am told are now up to about a thousand. I went through three units. I am now in need of a new heat exchanger, the third, at about $1200, so I am told. I have also gone through two burners, a master control panel and a fine selection of odds and ends. I have been collecting blowers and even had a complete spare furnace to help offset the cost. Unfortunately, it cost to much to strip the old exchanger out and replace mine. I am looking into a new Dunkirk Quantum 90. A little more conventional but hopefully a lot more easy on the pocketbook.
