I really don't have the money to call someone out next week to look at it. Would I need a plumber or electrician? 😕 or someone completely different? Whyyyyyy?!

    And to make it worse Dp said he found a MASSIVE rats tail up there. Apparently really old but he said it was MASSIVE! How bloody gross!
    What sort of heater?

    Why do tradies say "I'll be there between 7-7:30am" then always show up at the later time, or even later than that. Why not just say the later time if they have no intention of getting there at the earlier time.

    Yep. And another tradie classic... "I'll get back to you with a quote" and they don't bother. Annoying!

    It's a braemar, ducted gas heating. Dp is going to get back up in the roof and see if he can see anything obvious but I think I'll be calling someone on Monday.

    What a pain! The house is really cold. Seems so dumb to light the fire though lol if this house had some natural light to warm it up it would be ok 😒

    I've asked Dp to light the fire because it's just so cold in the house it's ridiculous. I'd light it but I need him to split some of the bigger bits of wood up and of course he won't because he's looking at something (thinking he can fix the heater)
    Just cut some effin wood so we can at least be bloody warm!!!!!!
