Over the last couple years, my husband had constantly been doing work to our furnace.
When we first had it installed, it was just doing the maintenance once a year and changing the air filters monthly.
Last year, we had to have the HVAC technician come in because it needed a new igniter. This year, they had to change out something that helped the fuel to get to the starter. Now we need some other component that works with the motor. I know very little about the furnace, other than it has a lot of expletives for the parts. I also know that furnaces are cursed and if you have to fix one thing, you may as well save the money for a new furnace. My husband said that is how things go with any appliance and he put the furnace in with the appliances. Once the warranty is up, you can be guaranteed that the appliance, or furnace in this case, will need to be removed and replaced within a year. He almost gloated that he was right when we called the HVAC company for the fourth time, and he told us we needed a new furnace. I’m not even going to offer to help him choose the new heating unit. I’m sure that he will pick the furnace that we need to keep us comfortable, and then I won’t be blamed if it isn’t what he wanted. I did tell the HVAC tech that I wanted great efficiencies and I wanted him to lean on my husband about getting a boiler so I could have radiant heating in my bathroom.
