We went with a boiler due to low repair requirements

It has been over twenty five years since we bought out home.

  • It was a fixer upper for sure but we knew that we could do a lot of the labor ourselves to save currency.

My spouse and his family all have experience in one part or another so that made fixing things up a bit easier and way less overpriced. My brother in law was even able to install the new boiler and the pipes required to heat the house. At the time we bought a standard component because that was all we could legitimately afford. The warranty was for ten years and we thought surely we would be able to afford and upgrade by then, and well, ten years came and went and we still had the same boiler. Now, twenty five years later we both agree that we are living on borrowed time. That same boiler is still in the basement and so far it has worked. It helps that we don’t have to use it exclusively to heat the condo as we have a wood stove as well, then it gives the boiler a split however I am still fearful that one night we will wake up and the component will have given up for good. A few years back we had it looked at and the worker was surprised that we still had it because it was beyond its life expectancy at that point, and my associate and I have discussed the fact that we legitimately should start saving up for a new one and I only hope we follow through before it is too late.
