Paid the Electrician

June 10th, 2015 at 01:44 pm

We paid the electrician that came to do a couple repairs on Monday. The bill was $87, which included a small fee for parts and tax. Two guys here for 15 minutes, but it was nearly half of what we were expecting.

Still one more repair bill to pay. We haven't seen that invoice yet, but we do have the bid so we have a general idea. I'm really hoping we have it tomorrow before we head out of town.

All utilities have been notified of our move. The gas is being turned off tomorrow, the water will be turned off before we leave, internet gets turned off Friday, and the electricity will keep going until we close on the house, hopefully in ten days or less. I think I will set it for 78 degrees...maybe 80 if it is going to hot during that time frame.

It will be nice to get the final bills of all the utilities and have them paid before we move into the rental home in July.

    No point in paying for A/C in a vacant house. I would set it at the highest temperature your thermostat allows. The buyers can turn it down when they move in.

    If you are leaving the refrigerator, you might consider turning it off and leaving it open. Sometimes the motor can be damaged when the power is turned on. Lost a couple in rental houses this way.

    Safe travels to your new home! I hope that you guys enjoy the time together travelling, and that the feline friends fare well!

    How nice that the bill was less than expected! Smile

    We ate dinner out at a restaurant...serving sizes are so big! Too MUCH food.

    The fridge is going with us at this point...did post it to Craigslist this afternoon, but not one person has inquired yet.

    Yes there is a point in running a/c in vacant home. If you don't know what it is then it hasn't happened to you. And it isn't worth the risk with this particular deal.

    I'm guessing ... mold? That would be pretty bad.

    Too bad your fridge didn't' sell!

    Why do you run a/c? It hasn't happened to me and I didn't grow up with A/C. So tell me?

    How much time do you have to give notice for utility bills to be shut off? Haha. I laughed when I read only $87 for an electrician. That's really cheap considering what those guys charge!!!!
