Hi everyone Miss Sandy came to my neck of the woods and left a lttle havoc! She took down my fence,(which banged into my sons car) and left us with no heat for a couple of weeks. When I got the power back on my heating system (in basement) would not go back on. Gas company says the problem was power surge to Rheem unit. After exhausting everything, it has to be replaced. Unit was over 20 years old so I am not argueing the point. Unfortunately the house has a few issues which I knew I would have to address (main issue is there was an addition added to back of house and heating unit was moved to heat both areas.) but of course things happen at the worse time and back in August my husband who is 64 was laid off for a younger less experienced, thus cheaper wages model. We are no way ready to replace unit and I must think of secondary sources of heat until we can do the big job. Was wondering if anyone knows of any old wood stoves that I might look at, maybe a site that you could recommend that has resonable used units. I have been using electric heaters to kill the chill but as the days get colder. I don't know. Any suggestions would be greatly apprciated.
