Heat's On

So. The heating and air guy comes out. I like our heating and air people - it's like family. I love being in the southwest, like the south, except educated service people. Friendly people who know things are always nice.

So. He takes one look at my furnace, stuffed behind a door in the hallway, a heating and air guy's nightmare, and about drops dead on the spot. No, we weren't here when the house was built. Sorry.

He turns on the heat. It has been off for days now. No burning smell. It smelled really bad early in the week. Thought the house would burn down. No screechy noise. Sounded like banshees in the furnace closet all weekend. Heat's blowing out of the vents just fine. The closet was really hot, but nothing had been blowing out of the vents. Huh. So.

So I wrote him a check for the service call. He told me to call him if it acted up in the next couple of days and my service fee would be good toward the repair.

Really? I could have had heat all week? My toes wouldn't be blocks of ice? Really? *sigh*

Until I write again ...

Reading about the noises you were hearing made me think of the scene in Elf where he is on the phone with his dad because he thinks there are evil sounds coming from the radiator. hee-hee!

Doingggg! Sometimes it really is just that simple. However, I think this is equivalent to hearing your car make a bad noise but when you take it in, they wave a magic wand over it & nothing is wrong.

At any rate, I'd be sure to keep an eye on it. It might be that it was just so overused during all the snow that it wanted to be left alone, lol...

Well, that isn't frustrating or anything..... Glad you have heat. I hope it stays. :)
