There's over a foot of snow on the ground outside and yesterday morning the central heating decided to go kaput. The 24hr emergency heating engineer should arrive between 1pm and 5pm today. I hope he can fix it and we don't have to wait for weeks/months to get someone in to replace it. The boiler is too old for a heating plan to cover it. The household insurance will cover the call out fee for us and some of the emergency repair costs though.
We knew the boiler was old but were hoping it would last out until the summer when we were planning on replacing it.
