Cleaning a furnace? I thought it just kept going on forever with no service
Just kidding. I know people that think that way though. They ask me why their
furnace is malfunctioning and I go over to check it out and most times it is
because the filter is so clogged the air can`t get through. It is like people
that never change the oil in their car and wonder why it doesn`t work anymore.
My idea of cleaning the furnace (for the average homeowner) includes
cleaning the outside and getting rid of the dust on the inside (and
cleaning out the parts of the ducts where you can). Is there anything
else obvious that I might have missed?
1. My parents had one, that the gas valve was ancient. The company did the
clean and check one time, and it didn't want to work after that.
2. I've cleaned a bunch of gas furnaces, and can't really remember having
any problems with them. The one gas boiler I cleaned and tried to fix still
needs a water feeder and an air eliminator, and the gal doesn't have any
money. Hasn't paid me for the clean and check and air bleed I already did.
3. I've got to get out my whip and spurs and ride herd on another customer
who hasn't yet paid me for three inspections I did.

You know here in Louisiana if you don't have a EPA card and do a hvac job that
requires filling or work on the freon system. You
don't have to pay that person at all. Now they can collect from you if they take
the hit of no EPA card , No contractor liability,
and no operator licences for the city you live in. The total cost is about $50K
in fines and charges to collect a $100.00 bill not
being paid. Most will not collect.

Are you feeling any better now? Which nursing home are you going to?
The way you keep consistently getting things wrong, it makes me wonder if
you're even competent to drive a car. Surely, you shouldn't be doing
heating. It is far too dangerous when you keep making major mistakes like
you keep doing.
Can you find a good retirement home? I'm really worried about you, you know.
Hope you get well soon.
Stormy was repling to me via Turtles post...he has alleged that I have had a
stroke...and that I need to be in a nursing home...
Hes starting to get this non Mormon absession with lying...
Remember, he was the one that posted as Mike, and me, and tried to get us
both at each other...then denied it even when the IP numbers were checked,
and traced, and went right back to the Rochester NY server that Chris
uses.....right down the same node at times...
Course...I dont get all that....:-)
1) I thought it was an electric furnace in mom's trailer. Not knowing
there was a pilot light flame and it was a gas furnace, I must have
blown or sucked out the flame wet my handy Craftsman wet/dry vac. That
would have been problem #1, if it had ended there. But I turned off the
vac and went to lunch. Problem #1: pilot light with defective
thermocoupler spewing gas into mom's mobile home.
2) Having a defective sense of smell. Upon returning to the trailer, I
did not smell the gas when I went in and closed the door. That would be
3) Problem #3? Well, my dear departed mother told me that smoking was
going to kill me. I never listened. So as I headed back toward the
furnace, I lit up my trusty cigarette lighter, and ....
