Featured Entry – Furnace 8

Brad from Kempt Shore, Nova Scotia

“Our current heating system, as were most things in the basement, is probably on it’s last leg and ready to die.  It would just be really nice to win a lucky break.”

Featured Entry – Furnace 7

Craig from Derry, New Hampshire

“I bought this house 5 years ago.  During the home inspection we were told that we would need a new oil burner very shortly.  As you can see by the picture the tankless area is crumbling badly, it’s also leaking.  There is a growing pile of debris on the cement pad.  I worked at a law firm when I bought the house, lost my job and the health insurance that went with it.  Every health and dental bill in the past few years has been paid in cash, and consequently my oil burner has suffered, too much I believe. One of my friends who worked on burners in the past has said that he has never seen one in this condition and took some pictures of it to show his friends.  I belong to the Knights of Columbus in Derry, NH and found out recently that a few of the Knights were praying for my oil burner to last until I had the funds for a new one.  I have been doing laundry and have heard chunks of metal fall off the burner.  I’m afraid to look at it or let my dog and cat downstairs because I’m afraid if they get near it it will expire.  Please let me know if you need any more pictures.”

Featured Entry – Furnace 6

Tiffanie from Portland, Maine

“I have a fire safety warning from my cleaning company. I called them to come and clean it and they didn’t want to touch it because it is literally falling apart at their fingertips. They warned me that this is a fire hazard. This furnace is over 30 years old and the cost of a new system on my salary is out of my reach. I asked about a payment plan and this was not even an option. I decided I would hope and pray it got me thought this winter until I could find a way to replace it. I go through more oil than I should, Crazy fumes are haunting my home and to beat all it’s a danger. Then I heard about this contest. Please come take a look and pick me for a furnace makeover! Attached is a photo for your viewing pleasure.”

Erin from Portland, Maine

“Our furnace is more than 80 years old. It looks like the ship Jules Verne used to fly to the moon. It once was fueled by coal, but has been converted to burn heating oil. It’s so old and creepy the kids are afraid to go into the basement alone.”
