Has Your Heater Broken Down?

Has your heater ever broken down? I mean to the point where you can't use it at all. We discovered that the inside of our heater has a big crack in it a few days ago. So obviously we can't use it at all. We need to have a whole new system put in which of course is going to be very expensive. We've been managing the past couple days with a space heater and our neighbor was kind enough to lend us her electric heater last night. The day time isn't too bad since the sun comes right through the bay window in the living room and helps heat the house up. The night time is when it's really cold and of course the first couple of hours in the morning. We're just taking it one day at a time until we can get a new heater installed. Luckily my parents said we can stay with them if we want to. Thank goodness for family.

We are having this very problem. Well the heater was over 20 yrs old, what can you expect? Anyway we can't afford a new one like that so we are researching space heaters. Good thing we have electric blankets and some small space heaters all ready.

Our heater is also very old. Electric blankets are wonderful. I had one years ago but none since.
