Woo Hoo....Dewey and Johanna just pulled in the driveway (it's 9:30 Wednesday night).
Last night the heat pump went out.
For normal folks living in the regular world who have things like furnaces and such as we did up north, the heat pump is down here is part of our central unit. It does what it says in its name...it's our heat.
Well, it was our heat.
Last night at 9 pm we had great heat pumping through the vents. Good thing when it was supposed to be around 20 degrees overnight. Good thing, that is until about 10 pm when the temp was dropped to 64 in here and there was a definite cold flow of air coming from each vent.
Jennifer and I battled that thermostat, checked breakers on the pole and in the unit. We got nowhere. LOL...not surprising, seeing as we don't know anything about that kind of stuff. We finally called Dewey and woke him up. My dear husband was fast asleep and not in the mood to be awake it seemed. He fell back asleep on me during the first call. I hung up.
He called back several minutes later and asked why I hung up.
I was tired, I was getting rather chilled. Let's just say the pretty picture of a happy wife and contented husband wasn't what we had going on. He was testy...I do suppose I had a hand in that attitude...and I was rather testy. I was asking questions, he didn't have a clue with this style thermostat, he told me to find the wiring diagram in the paperwork and we'd go over it...over the phone...
I'm about as electrical-minded as I am an architect, folks. I'm looking at the diagram, he's asking me this and that, and I'm just staring at it. It's not color-coated, so it was all Greek to me. I was looking at the wires telling him what color this one or that one was. He needed to know what the diagram said this or that was.
I imagine it was about like the scene after God confused the languages at the Tower of Babel.
Needless to say though, my dear husband is now home and tomorrow we will pick up the wood heater, the man will be in the morning early to deliver a full cord of seasoned, dry wood, already split for me, and we will start tearing out the window and building a wall and installing some much desired heat ;o)
I love my husband :o)
Even if he can't explain electrical stuff to me :o)
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
