No, it had to be the coldest day (so far) of the winter that the exhaust fan on our heater went out. That means the pilot light won’t go on, because there’s no exhaust fan to blow the fumes to the outdoors. No pilot light means no heat. No heat means very cold house. We are very thankful that Maciej came out, twice, to help us (once to ascertain that Yes, our heater was well and truly out, and the second time to bring some portable heaters so that we can make islands of warmth in our dining room and bedroom.
The gas heater company will source a replacement fan, probably Monday.
Streak running at fifteen.
