somewhat annoyed at property management co.
So on the 7th I was like, hey guys, the blower on the furnace is being wonky, when I hit the switch on the thermostat to turn the blower on it doesn't go, though it usually seems to come on when the heat goes on. Then on the 10th I was like, the blower doesn't come on at all and now the heat doesn't come on no matter how high I turn the thermostat. Not sure if it's the thermostat or the furnace itself, but the thing is I DO NOT HAVE HEAT NOW. Then on the 17th I called them up and was like, uh, so I haven't had heat for a week, and that hasnt' been so bad because the average high has been like 60, but it's getting cold in a few days, what's the deal? And they were like, well, we don't have anything on the work orders you submitted, but you're scheduled to have like the annual furnace inspection on Thursday 19th or something. And I was like, I guess I'll take it, but, you know, it's getting cold soon.
Anyway, the guy came and was like, uh, this furnace should be replaced, it's ancient and repairing it properly would be like $600 of parts, so they might as well spring for a new one. And I was like, great, hope they spring for it, but, you know, there's a storm tomorrow...
Anyway, the guy said maybe he'll get sent out again tomorrow (today) to set something up in the interim. If not, then...?
I'm kind of annoyed because if somebody tells you in November that their heat isn't working, you can't have two weeks before you get it fixed. I mean, for fucking out loud. If it hadn't been unseasonably warm until today, I would be boned.
I'll be fine, I'm just surprised that they don't see being without heat for two weeks in November as unacceptable.
