Wednesday afternoon

Wednesday, December 05, 2018

Today was supposed to be a quiet day of listening to Christmas music and making out my Christmas cards. I started out paying three bills. I got the stamp on one envelope and the HVAC guy called to say he could come in a few minutes to do the annual cleaning and inspection of my furnace. Okay.
Ten minutes later he came and started in on it. He ended up replacing the humidistat on the humidifier, and the humidifier panel.
My furnace is 13 years old, has had the blower fan assembly and the electronic circuit board and all of the wiring replaced after that major power surge of 2015. Now it is the heat exchanger that needs replacing, as it has a small crack in it. That is on order and will be put in sometime in January.
Good news: the heat exchanger has a lifetime warranty, so it is free. Bad news:labor is not. Good news:The part will be in sometime next month. Bad news:the entire furnace interior has to be removed, a 3-4 hour job.
Good news:I have the money to pay for it and Dan will be doing it, whom I trust implicitly.

I started doing the cards about five hours ago and got 6 finished! Tomorrow is another medical appointment, so I will do some more following that, if I am okay to leave the appointment.
It continues to snow today, but I have been doing the stairs and some lunges for now.

    I'm glad you are keeping up with the furnace repairs. I always think of carbon monoxide. Sometimes repairmen cut a deal on labor.

    Yes...most of the news is good news and I'm happy for you for that. Fun fact...when you run the heat in FL
    it's 3-4 X more expensive than the air conditioning....which is outrageous in its own right.

    Every year we bet each other how long we can go without turning on the heat. We just run a small space heater when taking a shower and add another layer of clothes and maybe a space heater in the room we are watching T.V. I think this is the 3rd or 4th year we have made it through the entire winter with no heat. emoticon

    Those annual inspections are very important! I'm glad you're getting this done - there are many people who would put it off because of the cost and then put themselves in serious jeopardy by continuing to use their heat unsafely. I hope all goes well. Hugs.

    fingers crossed, we only once had to have a repairman out for out Furnace/AC unit to fix a teeny little crack in the Freon line, and had to be emptied and re welded. And it is at least 15 years old. Where is the Lighthouse on your background. Neat, and keep forgetting to remark on it.
