Removing the old furnace equipment from the house was an astonishing production. I was shocked at the amount of old junky, dirty stuff that came out of the furnace room. The old firebox itself must have weighed over 500 lbs - that was scarey to know that monstrosity had been working as well as it did! There were 5-6 young guys in and out of our house for most of 4 days - I lost track of trips in and out. They had put down plastic over the carpet, and took as much care as possible - they were the best -- polite, courteous, hard-working, skilled, professional and considerate. I wish I had a dollar for every trip up or down stairs! Yikes, such energy. They also were in and out, up and down, in the ceiling putting in new "runs", making things, taking apart things, dumping old stuff, unpacking new stuff, pounding, coming and going, sawing holes in the carpet/floor for new registers! So much activity wore us both out - we had to miss our naps for 4 DAYS!
Ahhhh, the new A.C. condenser! Happy Day!
All this work was done in 4 days. Since installation, we've had some cool weather - the furnace works great! Now we're waiting for hot weather, to see how the A.C. works. 8-))) Naturally, we had to "play" with the computer thermostat! It's a relief to know this big job is done, and done well. Funny thing - when we bought the house 15 years ago, this was going to be the first improvement! LOL
Oh yes, one more good thing - there was so much activity, we couldn't waste time watching the danged news on the TV, so DH finished HIS boat project and I finished MY quilt project! That will be another post!
