The motor is shot. It will cost between $600 and $800 to fix it because it's so old (and that's assuming they can get the part . ..

It's true. It's okay. It is needed and it will make my house more energy efficient so that makes me feel a bit better!

Hi Marie,

I sure am glad I didn't start the reno. I still may depending on a few factors. Mom bought a condo and is moving out in March. I can't wait. I lover her, but she is not mentally healthy and its killing me. I even began to see a therapist since I've been so down lately and the moral of the story is I need my mom out. She is codependant and has reverted to this strange helpless behaviour thing (she won't even fill the ice tray because "she can't" ) I digress. . .
New furnace is coming tomorrow! I can't wait!

Thanks PB. It really is. I even got priority installation because I am southern Ontario and its considered a "no heat" situation. We are above freezing for a few days so that is what saved me from having a really cold night :)

Thanks! I will also be saving on hydro because the fan in the new furnace takes as much energy as a 60W bulb. Yay!

HI Ashley. Yes you should start planning. To be honest, all the guys who came in to give me quotes were shocked that the furnace had lasted this long (props to Lennox). Maybe its because previous homeowner took care of it? Who konws.

Thanks Norma! I am eligible for a rebate of $1040 in total as long as I get the paperwork in by March 31 (which I am planning on asap!)

I agree! Let the Penguins deal with Murphy!

Ouch! But...it has to be done. What a thrill it will be to have a lower heating bill!

Oh.....Bex will have a lower heating bill, Bex will have a lower heating bill, oh yes, oh yes she will! (Pretend there is music and jumping and laughter all around)
