High inEfficiency Furnace

It’s great to see spring on the horizon.  While the winter wasn’t too severe as NY winters go, we experienced 2 instances of waking up to the delights of no heat / furnace not running.  The first time around, we spent about 4 days huddled around the gas space heater in our 4 season room.  Sometimes we were even able to get up to around 58 degrees; I guess that was preferred to the 10 degrees that we hit outside. Our installer, Family Danz, responded the first day but determined that we needed an electronic component (ignitor) which they could not obtain until the parts shop opened on the next business day and Family Danz promptly returned and completed the repair.  The cost for this go round was $1,000. During the installation the repair guy proudly related that it is a similar electronic component as is found in drones… well, we’re not interested in flying, we’d just like to heat our house, thank you.
