    Default It's Going to be a Another Cold Night

    My heater works fine minus the blower. No blower, no heat circulation. I just discovered it yesterday afternoon and then I had to go to work.

    One company came over today and told me that it's the motor, but the unit is still under warranty. Except they won't fix it because they weren't the ones that installed it. I then called the company that did install it and they told me the earliest they could come is tomorrow night. So for now I have to spend another night in the cold. I woke up to 45 degrees this morning so tomorrow it'll be in the 30's.

    It seems like no company works at all late on these things. It's all because of stupid unions. If it hadn't been sooo union-ized down here I wouldn't have to wait to get this damn thing fixed

    That sucks dude... OC the crap out of all of your computers (not enough to kill them of course) and leave them on running benchmarks or something where they're on load pretty good and put them in the room you sleep in. It may be a little loud but it'll be warm.

    I bought a space heater and I'll have my daughters shack up the same room as me tonight, so we'll get through it, but it's still annoying

    My condolences to you and having no heater. And since this is your rant thread, I'll bite my tongue regarding unions.

    Inside your house?

    TGS, I feel your pain dude. 2 winters in a row I've had to call a furnace company to come look at our furnace. Last year, it would light and then go out a couple of minutes later because of a faulty limit switch. This year, the flame sensors were acting up and not sensing the flame. Even though they fixed it fairly quickly both times, it killed my natural gas bill ($350 for one month). Oh, and it was really cold when our furnace crapped out (-40), so the furnace company responded very quickly for us. I'm hoping you get some heat soon.
    My goal in life is to earn enough money to enjoy the lifestyle that my wife and kids do.

    Yeah, it's 10 degrees outside and -5 with windchill. Currently it's 42 in here and a balmy 58 where my daughters are sleeping. I decided to let them stay there since it is a small room and it does warm up very well. I have a mattress warmer and will be fine tonight. Then I work from morning to early evening and then HOPEFULLY the repair man will come.
