Who's the Bosch?
Apparently, I am. Or at least the new dishwasher I brought home today is. I can't say what I paid for it, but it was a returned product thanks to some poorly placed hands during delivery. It's got a dent or two. And it's a Bosch stainless. It completes my kitchen (except for the new sink, paint touchups, slate tile, and door to the side yard).
This thing has a different story. I installed a thermostat right after I moved into this house because I liked the style. It was round, but digital. When I had an orange wire left over, I never really thought about it. The heat came on. The a/c worked. No big deal. Well, that orange wire powered my heat pump. It has sat for 2.5 years and not been used. Instead, I was using the emergency heat only. Thanks Jim. Excellent gift. I feel so dumb.
It's 57 outside and already the heat pump has the house warm. I bumped it up a bit to 70 and it's already there.
