So I've had this post about 1/2 written for the past 2 or 3 weeks. I should just schedule a weekly time to sit down and write so I don't have to start out my few measly posts lately with excuses.
It's been fairly warm outside but so far so good on our new furnace/heat pump. It's amazing how much better it seems to be working already though our gas bills will be the real test.
The old furnace.
The new, clean furnace. No more groping around in the dank, dark corner trying to get a 3' x 4' door off just to change a filter. The new little sliding door is front and center! The furnace guys even scrubbed down the floor so they definitely get bonus points.
The old ac.
The new monster ac with heat pump.
The one thing I was sad about losing was my vintage controller. They wouldn't even let me keep it. I thought the guy was going to have a heart attack talking about the mercury thermometer inside. Gesh, I'm glad I didn't mention my old cooking thermometers which are in the drawer right below. Really I didn't need this lying around in my vintage decor hoard so it was a good excuse to tell it goodbye.
Ugh, this is what I get to look at now. It is nice because it is programmable but I'm not used to what looks to be some kind of NASA control panel on my wall. It also glows a bright green just in case I am fortunate to forget its presence for a moment.
