Weather has been, to say the least, “unusual” this year. Hurricane Sandy erupted into the “perfect storm” devastating the east coast. Here on the west coast November began with 85 degree days and 50 degree nights dropping to a high of 50 within a couple days. We decided to splurge on radiant heat downstairs but things have been progressing slowly due to major electrical corrections of the overzealous do-it-yourselfer previous owner. Temperatures plummeted and the contractor was able to install the new upstairs forced air heater just in time for the weekend.
We hadn’t planned to change any heating during this project but our ducts were old and dilapidated and we discovered that our furnace had been recalled about twenty years ago. The home inspector we used when we purchased the house obviously didn’t do a very good job inspecting; I wonder what else he missed.
I think we have made all the last minute changes and will now be able to move forward. It is amazing how expensive it can be to keep Janelle warm and cozy. Now if I can get Janelle to stop watching the home decorating shows for new Ideas and pick the faucets we will be good to go.
What is your thermometer setting?
