The transition from sizzling summertime to freezing wintertime was super short this past year. There was no fall season, because we skipped over it. The weather was sunny and eighty five one day and cloudy and thirty six the next. There wasn’t a transition between running the air conditioner to running the furnace. During this time of year, my life was insane. I was working extra long hours towards a promotion, so when my water heater ruptured and flooded the entire basement, I neglected to schedule my annual service for the furnace. When I went to turn on the heating method for the first time, there was a good deal of dust in the air plus the aroma of burnt hair in the air. However, with everything else going on, I didn’t do anything about it. When my home felt a little frigid, I continuously bumped up the temperature control by several degrees. I didn’t realize that I kept increasing the temperature control setting, until my monthly energy bill arrived in the mail one day. I was stunned by my heating costs, especially because my home wasn’t exactly hot or comfortable. Unwilling to pay for so much on my heat, I finally hired a Heating, Ventilation plus A/C corporation to come take a look at my furnace. The professional confirmed that the inner workings were stuffed with dust plus debris. He told me that I was lucky that the equipment hadn’t overheated or caused a cracked heat exchanger. He recommended that I get involved with a repair plan, which would include seasonal cleaning, tuning, plus problem shooting. The Heating, Ventilation plus A/C corporation now calls and reminds me to schedule my services.
