Last weekend when our gas furnace broke down in the Winter months, I was definitely freaking out. I felt love I might have a panic attack because I realized that the Heating and A/C companies during this time of year are consistently swamped and I didn’t want to deal with that type of headache. I suppose I had no option though because I failed to get our Heating and A/C system tune-up in the fall months, and here both of us were now separate from a correct gas furnace. The place was starting to cool down at a rapid pace and I knew I had to do something fast. Well, the first thing I did was call our father because I figured he would know what to do in case of an emergency. My parents have a slim bond with their grandchildren, so they would die before letting us freeze! My father said he would be on his way asap. Then I called the Heating and A/C supplier to see how suddenly I could get an Heating and A/C business over to our household. They said that unless both of us opted for emergency service, both of us would have to wait for about a week. I knew that I couldn’t afford the cost of emergency service, so I arranged for the service appointment in a week. I had a feeling that our parents had us covered. Sure enough, when they arrived, our father asked myself and others to help him bring in all the infrared space heaters. I didn’t know anything about infrared gas furnaces, but these things were powerful and energy efficient. My father was telling myself and others that they certainly heat the objects and people in the room before anything else which allows them to be so energy efficient. He said the destruction wouldn’t hurt on our energy bill while both of us waited for our Heating and A/C service appointment.
