PNW Espar furnace repairman

I wanted to let the group know about an Espar furnace repairman in the PNW. His name is Guy Johnstone. Our Espar furnace was declared dead and even dangerous by two Marine repair people. I was referred to Guy by another repairman, Rick Lee, as man I should have come look at our Espar D7L. Parts are not being made for this model anymore except glo plugs. Guy has been stocking up on parts, found some new sources and salvaging parts from other furnaces to keep these heaters working. In less than 15 minutes he had ours up and running. The problem was a bad thermocouple breaker that he reset and it works fine now! He did replace the breaker and did an inspection of the heater, ducting, fan, wiring and exhaust, then explained that the furnace was in good shape and could be safely used for several more years. So instead of several thousands of dollars to remove and replace we paid $354.00 to get it serviced, inspected and up and running. This fee also included driving 1 1/2 hours each way to come to our boat. Highly recommend this “Guy” for any Espar repairs!
