First thing would be to take it out of the attic and put it in the basement or in a utility room on the main floor.

I'm sure he knows this already.

It's now 10:40 p.m. I'll be waking up at 4 a.m., leaving by 5 a.m., hopefully arriving in Dallas by 9 a.m., parking my van, hopping in my boss' truck where I'll catch up on sleep during the 8-ish hour drive from Dallas to Nebraska. I'll only know in the morning what town I'm travelling to.

Marty, I think we'll be okay but just in case please keep your phone next to you! I have your number saved.

Wish me luck.

Well, I survived the vast arctic grassland that is Nebraska. Never again!

No returns hooked up, sucking in freezing air from under the house and the little piece of plastic that attaches onto the drain ports on the condensing furnace that collects water was missing.

System was cutting off and on due to the furnace condensate not being able to drain due to that little plastic tank thing missing.

End result is the system is in perfect working order, house is very warm, Cozy. Within 15 minutes of the issues being resolved the house was warmer than it had ever been! Dood is happy.

Pics coming.

Marty, I stayed at the Green Acres motel in Red Cloud, job was in Riverton.

I almost called you but got the issue resolved through Carrier tech support. Thanks a bunch though, having your number was a safety net I enjoyed having!

IF its in an area that drops below freezing??? Its Nebraska, Isnt it??

And the wind! Godalmighty. I was stationed at McConnel AFB in Kansas, and we use to say that there really Wasent any Kansas, it was just Oklahoma blowing through in the morning, and Nebraska blowing back at night.

And you better ground your butt if you touch electronics.

Funny sidebar. It gets extremely dry in Kansas in the winter.

The AF issued us Parkas That were Nylon on the outside. We munitions guys worked on electrically primed ammo and rockets. You guessed it. One 2.75 rocket went through two hangers before ending up in a dumpster about a 1000 yards downrange.

If you slid across the seat of a power wagon, you could discharge a spark that went about a foot. Hurt like a basket on the receiving end. Needless to say the parkas were recalled with burn marks.

Apparently during the Civil War Era the soldiers would not want to walk across a wool carpet in the houses with black powder on them or Whammo!!

I have had customers destroy electronic tstats with static electricity so yeah it can be harmful.

No wind, Riverton is in a valley but much nasal intake of cow manure. Good lord, I thought parts of Texas smelled bad, that entire state did!

I wondered why there is a hole in the Ozone right over Nebraska, and yeah, thats just like the Military. Guys igniting from static charges in 1863, and they still did not get it in 1965. Figures. Just goes to show you:

Experience = Recognizing the mistake the second time you make it.

Pretty amazing that they needed a PHD from Texas to fix an HVAC unit in Nebraska! That is really a pull to go that far.

That was barely in Nebraska Doc. Once you get away from the cattle feed lots the air is clean ,like 20 miles away down wind.Cattle do out number the human population in most of the state though. Out west in the pan handle it's sand dunes and cactus,central is wide open prairie and here in the east it's river bottoms and farm land. The northern half of the state is much colder than the southern half,they're even different growing zones.

Mom grew up in the northeast around Valentine and she has some pictures of one monster blizzard. National guard had to come rescue people because all that was showing through the snow drifts were the tops of roofs. Talk about artic waste land! What you saw was pretty typical temps in the southern half for this time of year with lows in the teens and highs around freezing. At least you now have a story to tell the future grand kids...how you survived two days of a Nebraska winter LOL.
