When we bought our house, we were told that the heating and cooling systems were probably the original systems and this house was built in the 1970's... That's a long time folks...30 odd years...old...
Thursday a local heating and cooling company showed up to fix that.. We now have a brand new furnace and A/C unit... He and his one worker were here almost 12 hours Thursday.. I had planned to let them get started and then take the grandkids out of the house because we were told it would be noisy in here.. That didn't happen as the one grand showed up with a low grade fever, no appetite and a junky stomach.. so we stayed home and really the noise wasn't all that bad...
|the new A/C unit|
The A/C unit used to be under the deck...that is not the ideal place for it... We had it installed on the south side of the house with new lines also.. When the heating/cooling guy came to give us the estimate we found out that all the gas lines in the basement were not gas lines...they were water lines...yes...propane was running through copper pipes used for plumbing.. Not safe...at...all...
Sorry, no photo of the old or new furnace...one was ugly and dirty and nasty...the new one is just a big metal box...lol
When we moved here the propane tank was located right next to the garage...There were many times we were afraid someone was going to back into it...
We called and made an appointment to have it moved across the driveway to a small area of land that wouldn't grow grass and was hidden behind a little row of trees..

This weekend will be work free...for me, anyway...Rich is fixing a little problem with a down spot this morning.. then off to memorial for a friends dad and then tomorrow we have a 6th grade graduation for a nephew...oh wait...great-nephew...HA..we ARE getting old..
