Wow. We had a call from a customer when their power was restored and the water was pumped out of their cellar. The water mark measured 34" from the cellar floor - the oil burner went total under for a total of five days.
The short answer? We had it running in two hours, babysat it for another hour, never replaced a part. Weeks later and it's going fine. Their neighbor had the same problem - the oil company replaced a lot of stuff to the tune of $800+. Ok, I know folks have insurance to pay for it, and yes, liability plays a part, but I just wasn't raised that way...
: The Nor'easter seems to have brought in rip-offs as well as water.
: Our burner motor and furnace chamber got wet when water seeped into the basement. We called the service company and they said that they could not even open the chamber to check it out or try firing up the motor in case it caught fire and the house burned down.
: They said that the best option was to replace the entire unit cost approx $2,000.
: Is this real or bogus?
