After Inspection Questionable Repair Suggestions

I had my Lennox high efficiency furnace checked out, and they found three problems:

Cleaning of burner assembly, dismantle, and reconstruct: $165.
Dismantle of current condensate setup,install condensate neutralizer, etc.: $330.
Blower Wheel Cleaning: $330.

Does this sound legit?
Thanks.

I get the second and third services done twice a year under a service plan for about $200 a year.

Welcome to the forums.

Prices are too subjective and different in every area.
How old is this furnace ?

I can see $500 - $600 max (and the $600 would be pushing the limit)

What you call problems are results of operation. When the results of operation accumulate to the point where the system doesn't operate or doesn't operate efficiently, you have a problem. Hopefully you have a furnace manual that lists periodic maintenance intervals. Experience, common sense, cost to benefit, etc., come into play to determine the degree to follow the published maintenance intervals.

Dismantle and clean condensate, clean blower wheel. Check pressures, check starting capacitor.
That takes my hvac guy less than an hour; add a few bucks for the cleaning/deodorizing spray.

So if $600 bucks an hour is the going rate in your location, I guess it's fair. Otherwise, use your own judgement.
