The heating season started here tonight
« on: September 29, 2008, 06:57:04 PM »

At about 6:30 I removed the blower from the indoor furnace ,cleaned the blower wheel and oiled the motor.

Put things back together,put wood in the OWB and lit it off for the season.Won't need much heat but will make DOM hot water though. At 7:15 the water temp. was 65deg.F and at 8:30 it was up to 175deg.F Everything looks good to go.
