I didn’t know how old our boiler was, however the two of us had lived in our house for almost thirty years, & the boiler was here when the two of us moved in.
When our husband went downstairs to his workroom, he heard water running.
He called upstairs & told me to call the Heating & Air Conditioning contractor because water was pouring out of the boiler. It was going to take a full day for the Heating & Air Conditioning contractor to get to our house, so the two of us headed to town. The people I was with and I needed a tepid water heater, because without the boiler the two of us didn’t have tepid water, and once the two of us picked up the tepid water heater, the two of us got several space gas furnaces to get heat in the house. The people I was with and I didn’t need to worry about pipes bursting, because they were all inside the house. My husband & I stopped in the aisle where they have furnaces. They had a ductless Heating & Air Conditioning plan on display. I thought it looked kind of gaudy, however when the customer service rep told me they were at the top of the wall, it wasn’t so bad. He told us about the efficiency of the ductless Heating & Air Conditioning system. The people I was with and I didn’t have HVAC duct, so that wasn’t a problem. The people I was with and I did love the efficiency rating, & how quiet it was. My husband told me that if the boiler wasn’t repairable, the two of us were going to invest in the ductless Heating & Air Conditioning system. The people I was with and I weren’t getting any younger, & with the ductless Heating & Air Conditioning system, the two of us would never need to put a window a/c in, or take it out, for the rest of our lives. I prayed the boiler could not be repaired.
