Well...the house came with like an 50-70 year old furnace...and it stinks...it works only a little...and it's sucking up too much in oil to be efficiant....$400 for only 22 days of heat is not going to be easy on my wallet....


The oil-leaking, smelly, POS boiler/furnace...






The huge 275 gallon oil tank that is sucking up valuable space in my basement...





The pipes and crap I have to re-locate and plumb...




And went shopping....$1500+ in moneyies for the thing and parts..and I hope it's good enough to do it's job......125K BTUs...to heat up the water in the house's radiators...








and just some other bullshit pictures....of the basement under construction...

















Ohh...and I'd like to thank Celerity for coming up to help unload it from the truck last night...to bad he showed up right when I was finished with the unloading of the furnace, 2 2X10X12, 2 2X4X12, 9 sheets of plywood sheathing and 7 sheets of sheetrock drywall.....his heart was in the right spot....hehe...my back is super sore...but I had to get the truck back to Lowes before they closed...and time wasn't on my hands...

Ohh...that wall around the computer looked nothing like it does now....and the rest of the basement will end up that way..it will prolly take me another 15 bags of mortar cement... :) and a lot of days to do it.....it looks like a mess now...but the finished product will deffinately increase the house's equity... :p

too bad you didnt have pics of what it looked like before you tore down that little wall. looks TONS more roomier now! the white definately gives the room the look of more space.

They didnt say anything about the furnace when you moved in? What about the inspection?

If you were closer, i have a buddy who does heating, and does inspections/basic fixes for beer... We close on Feb 15th on our house... Our furnace was recently serviced... :)

is it possible for you to get a natural gas furnace? we have one, lasted about 14 years and has only had to be repaired once.

The inspection only showed that the furnace needed cleaned....and I had thee sellers clean and service the furnace before I moved in...they just didn't do a good enough job...

Ohhh well...the furnace is histor...its now a gas furnace...and I had to miss work last night to finish the install....


The enw one is plumbed in and it works....heatss the house up just fine...and is super quite.



Just one problem.....


It leaks on the pipes that I installed..... :(


So I got to live with the driips for a while, or untill it's a nice warm day, and drain the system, and redo the pipes...I guess they needed to be Super-super-super tight...and I only got them super tight...


and noah...I got the beer if they feel like coming down to help get it up to code....


But all in all...I'm happy...


we got heat now, and I don't have to depend on the damn OIL guy for it....plus its quiter, safer, no smell at all, and I saved about $2-3000 on it.....all of this project was done under $2000...hehe... :)
