they just don't make 'em like that anymore
Not to worry, though, because our repairman immediately stepped in and performed furnace CPR.
Our baby has reached the ripe old age of 36 and I can honestly say that in all the years that we've lived in this house--28 to be exact--we've only ever had to have her repaired once before last night. And BOTH times, including last night--THANK YOU, LORD!!--it cost us less than $100 to have her repaired. Strict HIPPA laws (and the fact that I'm blonde) prevent me from going into too much detail about her condition, but I know she needed a new fuel filter and the magnets that have something to do with lighting the flame needed cleaned.
And that's why, when it's time for us to release her to that Great Furnace Repairman in the sky, I'm going to buy another Rheem furnace!!!
