Inevitably a furnace is going to need repair. If you own a furnace made by Coleman, then you will be in search of Coleman furnace parts. Where do you shop for their replacement pieces?
The good news is that all Coleman products have a written limited warranty including parts. What exactly does that mean? Simply put— nine times out of ten the parts you need to replace are covered by warranty. Simply follow the directions on your warranty paperwork. Generally you will need to contact Coleman by calling or visiting your local authorized Coleman dealer.
Local dealers are convenient to work with, and customer studies indicate local establishments respond much quicker than corporate headquarters. You can deal with a person face-to-face instead of sitting on hold and trying to troubleshoot which Coleman furnace parts you need over a phone line. As long as your warranty is still active— which your local dealer will have record of— Coleman guarantees in their own statement “that a replacement part will be furnished for any part of the product that fails in normal use and service.”
The most commonly purchased replacement parts include the filters, humidifier, and thermostat. Coleman recommends conducting regular maintenance on these products. However, over time they eventually require replacing.
Many homeowners opt to purchase different filters once the factory originals wear out. A great majority of homeowners visit their local home improvement store to choose a filter that more closely matches their air filtration and air quality needs. Coleman does not discourage a customer from purchasing a non-Coleman filter, but they do caution about proper installation to avoid possible unit damage.
If you are in the market for a Coleman furnace, you may be reviewing this to discover how easy it will be to hunt down Coleman furnace parts. You might also be interested to know that the manufacturer expects their gas furnace units to last approximately 20 to 25 years— so long as a qualified technician performs regular preventative maintenance, the customer replaces parts that need repair, and suggested servicing of the unit is followed as best as possible.
