Kurt - hope you have some heat soon, but I am glad you have the gas fire. Our temp was 6F this morning and our power went out, so fortunately I married a boy scout and he had the propane stove out to boil water for coffee, had the fire roaring and split wood ready, and the kerosene heater for the rest of the house. Fortunately the power came back on in about 2 hours, so my tanks did not cool down too much - that was my greatest worry. Today was the coldest day of the winter season so far, but by Wed it is supposed to be in the 50s.
Glad to hear you are OK. Looks like some of us are taking a step back to more primative ways of home heating.
We just got it repaired so it is working, but the heat exchange is shot so we need to replace the furnace ASAP
. I don't want a ticking time bomb in my house. The exchange was leaking fluid which shorted out the circuit board. Its also leaking a bit of CO2
. I think the kids will stay at grandma's till this is done.
We have narrowed it down to a trane or a carrier. The company that fixed it already gave us a run down on the trane, the carrier rep is coming over this afternoon. Either way we are gonna have to dish out about $3500.
There goes my March Vegas trip.
Not going to do this again, want to get a good unit that allows me to sleep at night.
