lazy flame - does is require a funance replacement?

I'm buying a house and my inspector and my HVAC guy both say that the furnace needs to be replaced. 26yrs old gas unit has a lazy flame. It was cleaning and still has the lazy flame. I can't get a straight answer if the furnace needs to be replaced or not. Help.. thanks!

It is a 26 year old furnace. You can either replace it while it still works, or you can wait until it doesn't work, which will be any time.

I don't understand why you say you can't get a straight answer whether to replace the furnace or not, if both your inspector and A/C guy tell you to replace it.
Replace it.
