    I think every house should have at least 2 1500W electric heaters, and make sure your buddies or family members that live nearby have the same, so you can buy yourself a few days if something gets fucked during a cold spell. Or all the equipment rental places (Rogers etc) sell 120V heaters that will save you from frozen pipes at least for a couple days while you figure out your options.

    Yeah, my brother's boiler is down. The two 4800 btu - 240v heaters we set him up with has him comfortable until he can't get it repaired.

    Shovelled wet, clumpy, 20cm dump of snow, with a layer of ice on the top as it decided to rain on top of the snow this early AM.
    Corner lot, extra wide sideways because living that BC Aspenite life.

    Back now broken.

    Sitting in pain.

    Looking at home depot website now for snow blowers.

    Not my pic but this is what is going on here with that layer of ice on top :

    I figure with two gas firelplaces and one zone of heated flooring, I can use small portable heaters and keep my pipes from freezing at the very least. Probably not that comfy, but we'd survive.

    Technically I didnt do it, but had to pay for a new furnace. Went out of town and got notification the next morning that our house was at 6 degrees. Didnt really NEED a full replacement, but parts that needed repair came to $4,500 with a few other parts on the verge that would go well over $8k... so went for a full replacement instead for $7500 to get a 10 year warranty. Needed this like a kick in the teeth, but better than frozen pipes I guess.
    I had this exact scenario 2 months ago.

    Not fun.

    I got the blower motor replaced on my hot water tank today. $1200 later... Thankfully its still under warranty until April of this year so I should get ~$900 back once the warranty paperwork has been processed.

    Question. Had a furnace warranty ever paid out for anyone?

    Mine wasn’t worth the paper it was written on last time it shit the bed.

    Dryer started to squeak and smelt like burnt rubber. so I bought a maintenance kit from Reliable Parts up on Fairmount and replaced the roller wheels, idler pulley and belt. It was pretty daunting but actually was pretty easy to take apart and reassemble.

    Dryers are remarkably easy to repair.

    My washer's circuit board just crapped out. 1 week wait for a part from Manitoba to get here, otherwise the parts are on back order indefinitely.

    I had a seal for my washer on back order for 8 months before I said screw it and canceled. My usual goto is Amry Supply but they only had stock out east then I found Reliable Parts which seems to have a reasonable selection. Otherwise it was a week wait on Amazon.

    I have a dryer roller job in my future. Starting to hear very minor squeaking. I should probably order the parts now.

    Its been a total mess here over the past few weeks with 40+cm snow, and then melt, and then freeze, and then melt. Garage got mega dirty.
    Its been +8ish this week so I decided to do something I've never done before in my life. I cleaned, organized, and washed my garage...............in January.

    BC life is not so bad sometimes.

    oh. I then went for a drive. In the summer car. Top down of course.

    How long ago was this? I replaced mine last year and the part took like 4 days to arrive.

    Ordered it in the first week of January 2021 and canceled it in August when I sold my house. Checked 4-5 different places in March and again in June and everyone was still out of stock. I could have got a chinese knock off but all the reviews said either it didn't show up, or when it did it was so creased from being packed that it was useless and they threw it out.

    Youtube saved my ass on the dryer not heating and the washer not draining.

    and I did not have the only say in the matter (most people just want it done ASAP and don't care about quality).

    If anything we made a better decision because we had a consensus and were all on the same page.

    I must have got lucky. I just checked and it was more like mid 2020.
