Okay, my furnace broke now…

A little while back I talked about how my stove broke, and I had to get it fixed. Well I have more good news guys. My furnace broke as well!

I feel like the luckiest man on earth..

Anyway it’s not all bad news, I had a friend visiting from Illinois.

Why does that matter?broken furnance

Well, my friend happens to do appliance repair aurora IL. What that means for me is I got a great discount on my furnace repair. I paid $65, which is how much it cost my friend to buy the broken part to fix my furnace.

I felt bad getting my friend to do work on his visit so I took him out to drinks and lunch, which cost a whole lot more than $65 :)

Every penny spent was worth it though, paying someone to fix the furnace would have probably cost me $500+ easily. Now I just need to hope nothing else breaks in this cursed apartment.

My friend is staying another few days in the U.K then he’s heading back home, so if something breaks it better break soon!

On the bright side, he’s had a great time in the U.K, probably because the weather has been fairly reasonable for once and we got the chance to do a lot of touristy things.

Thats it for today’s blog post. Will keep you guys updated on my U.K life. Hopefully some good news once in a while :)

 

My Stove broke, this apartment is terrible

Okay guy’s as you probably remember a little while ago I had some plumbing issues in my new rental apartment.

I’ve had the plumbing issues resoviled and I thought everything would be great, but it turns out I’m not that lucky.

Just as soon as the plumbing issues get fixed my dam stove stops working.

Why?brokenstove

No idea honestly. Unlike the plumbing issues I had I didn’t even want to touch the stove because

  1. I have no clue how to fix it
  2. Electricity is scary. I don’t want to get shocked

I talked to my friend in Oklamo who owns appliance repair business called Appliance Repair Broken Arrow.

I asked him what I should look for in when hiring a repairman; since unlike plumbing I have no idea what makes someone a “good” repairman.

Here’s what he said:

  1. Look for reviews on their website, or google (BBB)
  2. Talk to them on the phone. Let’s you see how quick they respond and get a feel for them
  3. Ask for a quote
  4. Compare multiple repairman

That’s it. Will give you guys an update about my U.K life very soon. Just hope that something else doesn’t break!

P.S landlord will be paying for the repair. Thankfully…
