Came home from a long trip to find out we had no heat in the house. Called Belyea brothers and their technician diagnosed the problem with our furnace indicating the gas valve and ignitor had to be replaced. They quoted $1806 to replace these two parts. I paid for the service call and told the technician I would call them later if I wanted to go ahead with the repairs. Based on some research I did over the internet, I found that quote to be quite high so I contacted another heating repair company. The repairman from the other company quoted a price almost $900 less for the repair of the furnace. They indicated there was a problem with only the gas valve and there was nothing wrong with the furnace ignitor. Needless to say, I had this company go ahead and make the repair instead of Belyea Brothers. The furnace worked well for the next 3 weeks before we moved. Can't understand why Belyea would charge $450 more for a gas valve than their competitor and want to charge $400 for an ignitor that doesn't need to be replaced. Not good.
