Glad you didn't have an explosion or frozen pipes. You're right, even if you had a pro do the thermocouple, you still...

would have had the same cost, probably. I am a very handy person and do lots of stuff myself - cars, other mechanical things, but I tend to not mess with two things - electricity and gas - mainly because the consequences of getting it wrong can be big. Stay warm!

Off Topic A cautionary tale of boldly doing DIY furnace repair. Sad BF Hammer 138 January 09, 2019 05:32PM
Do you remember a year ago, when our furnace stopped working after 21 years? Eek! James T. Kirk© 64 January 12, 2019 07:06AM
That sounds good, sort of ............ Robmks 53 January 12, 2019 07:58AM
Re: lso what would be the cost difference between gas/electric be for the Winter season be? James T. Kirk© 59 January 12, 2019 01:45PM
That is a heat pump. By far the most common way to heat electrically is with radiant baseboard units. BF Hammer 59 January 12, 2019 02:27PM
Re: Trace that electrical power back to the source, and you will mostly find coal being burned to create it. James T. Kirk© 57 January 13, 2019 04:42AM
Yeah but what watch was the repairman wearing? Laughing Seriously I'm glad it ended well. It's scary when the scent of gas is in the air. (n/t) Dave P 58 January 11, 2019 07:30PM
Based on the bill, it could not have been anything less than a Grand Seiko SpringDrive. Laughing (n/t) BF Hammer 56 January 11, 2019 07:42PM
Yikes, glad it worked out. Makes me feel better I have old fashioned oil/steam heat. Cheers! (n/t) Robmks 95 January 09, 2019 07:23PM
That's a very northeastern part of the country way of doing things. Natural gas and propane rules the middle of the country. Smile (n/t) BF Hammer 92 January 09, 2019 07:49PM
Glad nothing worse happened. And now you're nice and warm. And safe! Smile (n/t) Zeb 62 January 09, 2019 06:52PM
Warm, yes. Nice? Debateable. Poorer? Definitely! Laughing (n/t) BF Hammer 94 January 09, 2019 07:45PM

I don't fear electricity either...if I have personally disconnected the power. Wink BF Hammer 92 January 09, 2019 07:43PM
Good point - if I had formal education, I'd probably be cool with it. (n/t) Mike D 92 January 09, 2019 08:44PM
