Update: I found out that this has happened to a lot of people it shouldn't have happened to. They cut off the gas when they didn't find people at home, when they were out working and so on. It was systemic. There are cash flow problems, IMHO.
I waited two weeks before turning it back on, only because I am having guests come. I waited a lot longer than most.
And now I am going to work like hades to get solar heated water into this home.
I am convinced that there is cash problems with this company. I will not help them out. They lost money, and will continue to do so with us!! I will not turn the heat back on until the fall.
We are living among a solar panel revolution, with major advancements in personal solar power capabilities happening almost weekly.
I do not like energy companies, following the massively greedy antics of Enron and WesStar. I vow to learn to work around having natural gas in my home. I believe it can and will be done.
most northern tier states have a winter shut off law. usually after either april 1st or april 15th the power company can shut off the fuel for lack of payment resons..Most power companies will work out a payment plan to avoid this shut off..don
