I am dealing with oil furnace repairs so I have heating device on the mind at all times.
The other night I learn my child the story of Rapunzel.
I couldn’t help but afterwards ponder the heating situation for that princess. Her tower must have been impossible to heat. What kind of oil furnace could she even have? A boiler plan goes into the basement and uses piping to supply baseboard heating. The tower basement would be too far to have piping stretch to her room. A gas furnace with gas hookups would not work. A fireplace would not be sizzling enough. Any kind of ductless component could not be installed due to the stone tower. Adding ductwork would be just as strenuous though. Ductwork also works better in a straight line to prevent cracks in it. A circular tower would be just begging for costly ductwork sealing appointments. Forget what type of oil furnace she can use. Think about how to prevent the heat from getting outside. The tower has an open window with no way to close it. The heated air would leak out the tower. Those yearly bills would be super high and the heating device would be finally working double time. The heating device would need so many oil furnace repairs due to it over finally working itself. Have you ever seen an HVAC contractor? They are regularly big, burly men. Rapunzel would have a heck of a time lugging the HVAC contractor up to her window with just her hair. He also would be carrying tools and replacement parts with him, adding to the weight.
