Anyone stock spare furnace parts?

Does anyone stock spare furnace parts for really bad weather & roads? I would think that would be a must if you live in a remote area. I've been known to stock spare parts for quite a few different things.

After Thanksgiving, I was telling a co-worker that when my wife turned on the oven to cook the turkey, the heating element burned out. He asked what we did then, I told him: "I did what anyone else would do, I went to the garage and brought in the spare stove". Got the "Duh" look for that one.

It just so happened that the house we moved into had a stove but we brought ours with us when we moved so it was purely coincidence that we had an extra stove.

Since I heat my place with an outdoor wood stove I keep a spare circulation pump and blower fan for that on hand. Then I use the blower in our propane furnace to circulate the hot air in the house so I keep a blower motor on hand for that.

I try to keep a complete set of spare parts for my residential oil fired furnace.

Recently, though I needed a new ignition coil for my furnace. Then I remembered that I helped the ex-inlaws, about 10 yrs. ago when they needed a new ignition coil for their furnace.

Fortunately, I was able to locate a new ignition transformer for my furnace within a 25 mile radius before 5:00 PM on a Friday.

Moral to the story: keep your inventory up to date. Eventually old furnace parts will be hard to find.

John,PA

I have a spare igniter just like the one pictured below, but when we are home the Jotul wood stove provides 90% of our heat. In a pinch I have a couple of fish house heaters, (9,000 btu propane) and a few 20lb tanks of propane. also have a Remington 55,000btu force air temporary heater, and I think our 2500 watt generator would run it. We have very reliable electrical service so we seldom need any back up. Last summer at the cabin a tree fell across the line and I used a deep cycle battery and an inverter for a couple of hours.

Same here, plus a control board, thermal limit switch and a fan motor capacitor. They all seem to break down after normal business hours. Lesson learned the hard way.

I heat my house with a wood/oil combination furnace . I saved the blower, blower motor and (fairly new) oil burner unit from the old oil furnace it replaced. A friend of mine replaced an old oil furnace with a natural gas unit and I took the oil burner out of that one too, as it was also fairly new, so I have a fair stock of parts. So far only have needed to use the fan /limit switch off my old furnace on the current furnace. Also keep a couple spare burner nozzles and filters . I primarily burn wood and only use maybe 100-150 gallons of fuel oil a year.

I got a loooot of spare parts for my wood boiler. (chunks of firewood) HeHe. Bunches of them have turned to smoke this year. LOL.
Seriously though, I do have a new Grundfos circ. pump, which I can easily install into any part of my heating distribution system, including the boiler loop in my domestic hot water storage tank. All the pump flanges have ball valves to isolate the pumps. and I have a salvaged combustion fan that will fit my wood boiler. Also have my standby Yanmar diesel generator, which will handle the whole house's electrical needs. I don't have a bomb shelter, but my pantry is full of garden produce, also. LOL

I keep a thermocouple, and if pressed, could probably come up with a spare fan motor. Furnace failure is always at an inconvenient time like a weekend when hardware store is closed.

I have so many "in case I need it" parts for things I no longer own,I should open a parts house. My new startigy is 2 hvac systems(one for bedrooms and one for living area)on set back t-stats. If the cook stove go's belly up there is allways the microwave,unless both go at once,and we use the rv. The rv is handy for several outages and unexpected guests also. An iron fitting with 1/8"mpt supplying water to a humidifyer rusted and popped out during the holidays. I cleaned the hole out then ran a 1/8th tap through the threads so a grease zerk could be used to plug the leak until I pick up a new fitting. I worked with an old Navy man that was of the opinion you need to be able to improvise while at sea and boy was he ever good at it. If anything sprung a leak,he broke off a broom handle and was whittling on it before water or oil had time to hit the floor.

After the last time I had someone work on my water heater, I ordered a few spare parts (ignitor, copper tubing, fittings, etc.) and they are hanging on the back wall behind the water heater.

I may never need them, but they really are cheap insurance.

I have an older gas furnace. Probably will die with it still in the house. I keep an extra thermocouple, fan belt, fan motor, gas valve, control to turn fan off and on, filters.
I know the newer furnaces are more efficient, but I haven't spent a nickel on repair or maintainence(except filters) in years.

I keep a ceramic ignitor on hand, have had them break during the night. I listen to the exhaust blower on the furnace and water heater when they come on, every time I am in the basement. Had to replace them both before they went completely out.

I bought a new furnace in 05 and I got on line and ordered a ignition sensor and a ignitor the shipping was quite expensive so I ordered 3 of each. Put the parts inside the furnace out of sight I will be money ahead it ever quits.Rather than call a plumber at 3:00am

When I had furnaces I would all stock parts, fans, gas valves, ign trans, trans, brain boxes, thermo couples. I even have a gas valve to an old coleman mobile home gas furnace, guns to oil furnaces.

You will find out that furnaces break down late at night, holidays, when stores are closed, and the coldest night of the year.

Furnaces don't break in the summer, go figure.

I switched everything over to electric baseboard heat and rarely have a problem. If there is a problem, it's only in one room. No big deal. House will still stay warm

Sad to say, HVAC repairmen would be out of a job fixing furnaces, heat pumps, if everyone converted to electric baseboard
