Question Help! Need help finding a coil for older Furnace.

Last week we had a co. come and remove espestos and redo our central airducts. They gave us a free UV light filter for the furnace...when the guy tried to install it he punctured the coil. A tech guy came out and said it needed to be has been 9 days they said they could not find the model and tried to sell me a new unit...I told them to replace the coil since they damaged it! Now I am getting the run around on finding a coil for my old unit!

I took pictures of the labels of the furnace and the piece the punctured label...
Can you tell me where I might look for this part? We have been melting for the last 8 days!

Hope you can view the pics... Just in case...Here is info.

Sears Roebuck and Co Model 867.762331 MFG # SUGE105CG02
ANS.Z21.47 1983 Central Furnaces

Coil Label reads...Top to Bottom
Style NO.

I doubt you will find a coil for that old of a unit. If the company who punctured the coil doesn't want to make it right call a lawyer.

That's just a cased coil that sits on or near your furnace. They just need to buy a coil that matches your system size and install it. And yes you can still get coils for R-22 systems.

If you want to show a picture you need to post it on a free host like Photo Bucket and provide a link.

There is a button above that you can use to make an image appear in a post.

I cannot even count the coil end loops that I have repaired that had a simple puncture. Tell them to get a skilled torch man out there to shape the tubing back and simply silversolder the hole up. It is a really simple procedure, sometimes you may need to cut the metal back encasing the tubing to expose a bit more of it. These boys may not be that competent you may need to instruct them to flow nitrogen through the system while they are doing any torch work on the lines and let them know that it has to be perfectly clean (sanded clean). Cheez what kind of amateurs are you dealing with there?
