Changes can be stressful. Especially when changes are happening inside the house. No not a renovation or anything fancy. Just a new furnace, high efficiency LP that is supposed to be 14 X 29 inches. I don’t know how tall it is..it is only the footprint that concerns me.
The utility room in this house was a huge mistake to begin with. Not enough space was allotted in the original plan. I thought I would have room for a regular washer and dryer..think again they ended up in the kitchen. It didn’t make much difference it was a few years until we finished the kitchen anyway. Later we bought a Maytag Stacker and it does fit in the utility room but space is limited, what with a water heater, a pressure tank for the well, a sewage lift pump all necessities of course and they all take up space and are mostly immovable.
I hope that the “fixes” we have planned gain some space. Time will tell. We are both cranky when it comes to discussing this renovation, which involves some re-plumbing etc. The 14 year old pressure tank that rarely lasts 10 years will be replaced with a smaller sleeker one.
I made a footprint of this new furnace out of paper and shoved it all over the wall where it should go. I wonder what it will look like in each space I pick, will it work? It is smaller than the air exchanger that it replaces.
The old outside wood stove was sold and hauled away yesterday. One less thing for the kids to worry about.
It was a good outdoor furnace..it kept us and our water warm for 14 years.
It is the end of an era for us, no more wood hauling, cutting, stacking or splitting:)
