Question Replacing Gas Furnace Burners?


I'm in the process of purchasing a home and I called up to get my homeowners policy set up and they said since the furnace is the original one from 1965 they can't issue me a policy unless the burners have been replaced/updated.

Is it difficult to replace/update the burners on a Peerless gas furnace?

Thank you!

Does this house have a boiler (with pipes and radiators or baseboard convectors) for heat or does it have a warm air furnace with ducts and registers? I don't get out much but when I see the name Peerless in conjunction with residential heating I think boiler.

As I stated, I don't get out much but I have NEVER heard or read of an insurance stating that a furnace (or boiler) past a certain age needed to have the burners replaced. Generally when burners need to be replaced the whole darn furnace or boiler should be, and is, replaced. You might want to check with a different insurance company.
