Someone* must have known something. I am home on a sick day, fighting off a migraine. I actually went back to bed once the kids were on the bus, waking at 9:20. Imagine! Started my daily routine, noting that the room seemed cold, and I had thought that I reset the thermostats since I'll be home, keeping the heat up to 65, stopping it from going down to 60, which it is programed to do in our absence. I checked the bedroom zone, it is calling for heat, yes I did reset it, and the current temp is 59.
I checked that there is still oil in the tank (hey, you never know). I checked the 2 other thermostats-same issue, calling for heat, really low temps. Sigh.
Got the wood stove going, called the LL, who called right back and we've set up a service call. Furnace was just serviced and a repair made. Now what is the problem?
I ended up using the kitchen sink and a basin to wash my hair and have a sponge bath, using water I heated on the range. No furnace=no hot water. Luckily, I know what to do so basic needs are/can be addressed.
So now I wait for a service tech. At least one perk I have with a rental, is not incurring these service bills.
