Yesterday my wife and I bought our first house. For those who don't know, before settlement you need to run through the house and make sure everything works. We did and everything worked fine, toilets flushed, lights turned on, and heat came through.

Hours later after we sign all one million papers we showed my parents the new place. It's fucking freezing in there and I never turned the heat off. So my Dad starts looking at it and the heater isn't working. We tried a million things and it wouldn't turn on. I had to call my realtor (this was all at like 8:30 - 9) and get the number of the dude who installed the heater (since it's basically brand new) and then had to call him. I felt like a douche calling so late, but my Dad said that's how it has to go, haha.

He said he was gonna send someone out today. Now I gotta wait around for him to call. I really hope this thing is under warranty because I don't want to give these people any money. What a bunch of crap.

Thanks for the welcome :o

You'd have to check your home owner's policy/insurance to see if it's under warranty--I'm not so sure that would be covered. My ma's a realtor, and she told me that you have to wait and see what the heating guy says when he comes to fix it: it's possible the home inspector didn't do his job and he's a fault, so you'd go after him; or, just as bad, the prev. owners/sellers could've known there was a problem with the heat and they failed to disclose it, which is a law suit.

When my parents bought my house, there were cow boy doors in the kitchen. The fuck is up with that?
Anyways, congrats and hopefully that guy comes and fixes the shit.

Cowboy doors in the kitchen sounds pretty sweet if you ask me. It's like a saloon. or something.

Everything got straightened out last night. The guy was pretty cool and he said he expected the heater to do this since it hasn't really run ever since he installed it. He didn't charge anything because I guess its under warranty. He even said he's supposed to come out right before the summer to make sure our AC is gonna work properly and that there is no charge for that either.

He said he installed the heater over a year ago, and he was looking through the house a bit and saying they did a really nice job fixing it. He basically told me it looked like hell when he installed the heater. So I guess that's good to know.

Umm....when we moved into this house, there was a huge sign near the ceiling of the garage that said, "Kielbasa Room."

....I have no idea.

I would love Saloon doors, I'd just turn my house into a saloon, then eventually just turn into an Old West Cowboy, break the spurs out.

So I go into the house again today and the heater is once again not working. I called the dude up but I only got his voice mail. What the hell, he said this wouldn't happen again the idiot.

Just curious, what's the period on your loan? What is considered a normal period?

The rest of my life. 30 years.

And Jim, it's gas heat. I was actually just in there again and it's colder inside the house than it is outside. It was actually nice to go outside after being in there. And this asshole still hasn't called me back yet.

Anyone can stop in whenever they like. I'll probably be there throughout the day tomorrow, so just give me a call if you wanna swing by.

It's cold as fuck in that god damn house. And now since the dipshit who installed and "fixed" the unit the other night hasn't called me back, so I had to call up these other sons of bitches that are going to cost me money. WHat the fuck. I'm going to kill myself already. Oh well now I gotta go back into the house and wait for these people to show up "in the next few hours."

You're giving in? You shouldn't have to shell out money for something they should fix.

Technically thats not his fault, in my trade you give a 1 year warranty, after that your shit out of luck. He just got an easy year out of it. Not that I'm sticking up for a guy doing a shotty job without having any pride in his work, thats just how it works in the construction trade.
