Furnace broke
    #3916031 - 03/14/05 01:35 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

First of all, I would like to say hello to the mushroom community. I just started growing and actually picked my first flush off a cake yesterday (about enough for 4 people), and throughout the process this board has helped me out very much...so thank you.

So here is my question, my furnace broke. I woke up this morning and my house was 56 degrees, I usually keep it at 72. So I'm wondering what affect this will have on my pinning cakes. Will they go dormant during the cold (its about 65 in my chamber @ 95%) or become aborts? The furnace guy is supposed to get here by the end of the day.

Thanks.

Welcome

Wow, 56 in your house?  Pull up a sweater :lol:

They'll be fine, it could slow things down slightly, but assuming they don't sit at 65 for days on end you'll be fine.

i think they will be fine but you should get a small heater for the day and a blanket at night to keep them warm ...

"Six words: drop out, turn on, then come back and tune it in -and then drop out again, and turn on, and tune it back in-it's a rhythm- most of us think God made this universe in nature-subject object-predicate sentences-turn on, tune in, drop out- period, end of paragraph. Turn the page- it's all a rhythm- it's all a beat. You turn on, you find it inside, and then you have to come back (since you can't stay high all the time) and you have to build a better model. But don't get caught - don't get hooked - don't get attracted by the thing you're building, cause... you gotta drop out again. It's a cycle. Turn on, tune in, drop out. Keep it going, keep it going- the nervous system works that way. gotta keep it flowing- keep it flowing.

Thanks guys,

I wrapped my chamber up in a blanket. The furnace guy just left about 30min ago, so things are SLOWLY warming up.

I had my furnace run out of oil a few winters ago.

I had to use a space heater to keep things warm in my grow room.

Took them 2 days to come fill up my oil tank.  :crazy:

well, it WAS working. I left the house for an hour or so and the thermostat is at 58, and the furnace has'nt ran since. The heating place said they would come out again today. Hope my mushies (and myself )dont have to put up with this much longer.

that sucks.

try turning up the thermostat...that might kick it in.

if you have an oil burner...there is a reset button on top off the burner.
try pushing that...then turning up the thermostat.
try this several times...you might have some air in your fuel line...if the guy didn't bleed the line right.

I used to be a furnace man.

:smirk:
