The house heater is out of commission

My poor uncle has been having a hard time this winter season, ever since he moved into this current house. It’s been one issue after another. I guess I shouldn’t say new, the home is pretty outdated actually. But he has typically always been drawn to homes like that one. He likes places with character and history because they typically have more life to them! At least, that is what my uncle is always telling me, but I think he’s starting to eat those words. I know when he bought the site he didn’t look at as thoroughly as he should have. He did have a house inspection, but my parents say he didn’t have an Heating, Ventilation & A/C inspection. He thought the house was a great deal, when in fact the price had been lowered a lot because there were complications with the Heating, Ventilation & A/C system. When he first started having hot water complications, he thought to just have the hot water tank replaced, since the old tank had been in that home for about 13 years; not the oldest it could be, but it still could be replaced. Well not even a week after that, his central heating stopped working! That old outdated boiler had breathed its last and had enough! My poor uncle knew it wasn’t an HVAC duct problem (boilers don’t use air ducts or air filters for use) and that meant the problem could only be serious. He ended up needing a whole other boiler, and only one model would do the job with his old outdated system. It took numerous days for that his boiler to come in; numerous days of no heating. He’s gleeful again now that’s installed, however those were a lot of days with no Heating, Ventilation & A/C!
