Just in time for winter to come back.

After 33 years of nearly flawless service, our furnace finally went on to that big scrap heap in the sky. Naturally, this occurred the day spring started but winter has briefly returned with daytime temps in the 30s and low 40s. This made for a fairly chilly overnight and it had dropped into the 50s in the house by the morning.

Now a new furnace is being installed and it is remarkable how different they look decades later. It is about 1/3 the physical size of the old furnace and substantially more efficient. It’s one of the home systems that I am astonished by because I don’t know very much about it at all. Everything about it is new and interesting to me, but that doesn’t mean I’d want to do it for a living. If it is something that can explode or electrocute you, I’m out.

With any luck, we’ll be back up and running yet today and it’s a solid investment in the home for the long haul. I have layers in the meantime.
