The alarm on my little phone went off at the crack of eight in the AM and, of course I rolled over picked up the phone and turned off the alarm. Then I laid there for a few minutes. The few minutes became twenty so I figured it's time and forced my frail old body to leave my cocoon of comforters. I placed my feet on the ice cold floor and bam I was awake.

The two furnace guys have been working at a steady pace all morning. Looks like they'll be done in a couple of hours. As for me, I'm looking forward to rejoining the twenty first century. Maybe I'm soft but I like the ability to have heat on demand. This trying to heat a large home with a simple gas fireplace and a couple of heaters is for the birds. I know, it could be worse.
Looking at the new unit I can't help but be amazed at the progress of furnaces over the past sixteen years. Out old furnace was high efficiency rated at 92% and the cost was well over four grand. This one is roughly 25% smaller, puts out the same amount of BTU's and is 96% efficient. All this and the cost was around 30% less than our old furnace. Progress, got to love it.
Well that it for today from me. Once they are done I will post more* but for now my main objective is to stay warm. Signing off from up here North of Disorder.
*Well the furnace guys are all done and my home feels like a nice warm home again. So ends our tale of furnace woe. Something I wasn't expecting was the new furnace is also a lot quieter than the old one.
