Thank goodness

Our furnace stopped working over the weekend. We noticed since we got a crazy cold snap and it snowed. Our furnace was happily blowing away, only the air was cold. Clearly we can't sell a house with a broken furnace, so we had the guy come out today. He told us we needed a whole new furnace. It would be around $4000 and a salesman could come by in a few hours to talk to us.

Before we plunked down that kind of change, we decided to call a different serviceman just to get a second opinion. Best $78 we spent all week. He basically (in as polite a terms as possible) told us the first guy was trying to rip us off. The problem could be as simple as the wind blowing down the chimney just right, or as complicated as we need to replace a $200 switch if it happens again. No new furnace needed. Praise the Lord!

Needless to say, we won't be calling the first place ever again if we have trouble.
