I have been advised that I need a new gas valve on my furnace. I haven't been able to keep the pilot light going and did replace the thermocouple, however, this did not help. My question is, can/should I replace the gas valve myself. I am handy, however, am not a licensed gas fitter. The unit on there at the moment appears to be a honeywell VR8200A2009. Evidently, the replacement for this (I looked up on the honeywell site) is VR8200A2132. Anyways, I have been quoted $450 plus taxes to replace. However, when I see that I can buy the valve for ~ $70 I am tempted to replace it myself. Should I be considering this - is it difficult to do? Thanks.
No announcement yet.
