    Furnace fan stopped blowing last Friday. Called in Centerpoint and they diagnosed the issue as a bad board. They put in a new one, but then our Nest thermostat wouldn’t work. No longer getting power. Guy thought maybe the board he brought was faulty as well, because it was giving him error codes even with his jumper equipment.

    They came back today, board this time is fine, but the Nest still wouldn’t work. I have up and agreed to a different thermostat. They hook it up, test all functions, everything works. We could again turn on the heat, fan, and AC from the thermostat they put in.

    Then they leave, and the AC won’t come on. Furnace and fan work fine, no AC. Obviously it isn’t needed right now, but I’m still pissed. Time to get on the phone with them for the umpteenth time in the last week.

    Problem is my mechanic is older than me. If he goes before I do I am going to have to train in a new one. Not sure how that’s gonna work.

    Sounds like your mechanic is old school. He’s probably a big believer in “good service” and therefore I can’t really see him passing before you!
