    Are there any instructions attached to the furnace?
    I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

    Do you know if its lit with a flame or electrical?

    If its a flame, there are a few ways to restart it (a breeze may have blown it out), if its electrical though, you'll have to get a pro.

    it was crazy windy here yesterday, i suspect that's when it happened...

    i gave in and called Reliance - and said tomorrow morning would be fine because it costs $150 for them to come out at night.

    :(

    at least i have 2 months of hydro rebates that can go to pay for this!

    *whew*

    Good plan!!!!

    If you're up to relighting it yourself, there should be lots of articles on Google. Personally though, I'd just hunker down and wait for the pros in the a.m :lol:

    Glad to hear it.

    Sometimes relighting things can be a bit tricky. I'm glad you got some help. I'm always nervous that I'll blow something up.

    rou, all you have to do is turn off the breaker & you'll be fine, tho messing w/ electricity is kinda scary! :toothy4:
    Glad you've got heat again!
    Now you know what to do next time, right? 8-)
