The plumber is here now fixing and replacing the relay thingy and a valve joint on my boiler. I came downstairs this morning and went down into the kitchen, dining room, family room area and it was like stepping into the fridge! No heat was getting to those rooms! I immediately called my plumber. Yes, a plumber. When you have a boiler system your heating is all pipes and water and you need a plumber. Darrell knows this house and boiler well!!
The valve he has to replace is what he's turning there. See, all corroded with my well water because it was leaking. It then dripped on the relay box below (that he already replaced) and burned out the little computer board in there. That made the pump not get the signal to turn on! Thus, no heat was circulating.The whole thing will cost me $555.00!! Oh My! What I have to pay to keep warm is astonishing because my oil bill is terrible!
My daughter says "I don't understand why you like old houses." Well, they do have their challenges, I'll give her that, but you don't have houses built like this one today or with the old world charm!
I feel like I'm the keeper of this house for now.
