I hate scheduling appointments. I have a very busy life and it’s hard keeping my schedule straight. Every time I make an appointment for something, I am worried I’m forgetting about something else. Nonetheless, I was watching TV the other day when I realized I was cold even though I was underneath the blanket I had over me. After getting a thicker blanket, I noticed it was much too cold in my house. I grabbed the flashlight and walked downstairs. When I got down there, I didn’t hear my furnace running. Sure enough, when I reached my furnace, I saw that it was off. I have no experience with any heating equipment whatsoever so I decided to call an HVAC business for help. It was very cold outside so I told them it was an emergency situation. They sent an HVAC technician to my house in the middle of the night. I led him downstairs to the furnace. After about 45 minutes, he came back upstairs and asked me where the thermostat was. He waited another 20 minutes just to make sure my furnace was working properly and producing enough heat. He told me my heater was getting quite old and that I should look to have it replaced in the next few years. He did say, however, that he performed a heater repair and everything seemed to be working fine again. I tipped him generously. I’m glad I had the phone number of an HVAC business that offered emergency repair services. I am definitely keeping that number saved in my phone!
