Our gas furnace is end of life and we’re trying to replace it with a heat pump. Remarkably difficult.
Most companies won’t call us back. Of the ones that have, they all, except for one, pushed gas furnaces hard, flat out lied about heat pump capabilities (or didn’t know?) and made it clear they aren’t actually capable of a good install.

I know I’ve asked this before but I still can’t figure it out.
How do you get the federated timeline to stop updating out from under you while you’re reading it?
I thought the trick was to scroll down and then up a little after switching to the fed tab, but that’s not working for me (in safari, on phone).
I feel really annoyed and frustrated. There shouldn’t have to be a weird scrolling trick to make the federated timeline readable.
Cooking this lasagna has been a three day affair and involved lots of grocery shopping and cheese grating help because I haven’t been feeling very well.
But they’re in the oven now and I’m looking forward to dinner!
