Things have been quite chilly around here as of late.
It’s been uncharacteristically cold for these parts, and I’ve been lured into a false sense of security because of how warm it typically is in the winter. I guess what I’m saying is I haven’t been maintaining my heating system very well. We typically only use it a couple months out of the year, and I’ve been paying much more attention to air conditioning maintenance. I have finally called out an HVAC technician to help fix up the heating components of my system. The trouble is, it’s the middle of winter and he’s already quite busy because of the aforementioned freezing weather. I guess it pays to make sure the entirety of your HVAC system isn’t ready for whatever kind of weather may be thrown at you throughout the year. I’m sure there are plenty of colder climates where it would be considered crazy not to make sure that your furnace or other such heating system was well maintenanced. This has been the coldest winter in a long time for this country. I don’t know if such trends will continue, but what I do know is that from here on out, I’m making sure I get the maintenance I need on my climate control unit. I’m sitting here without any form of central heating, and it’s pretty tough as I wait for the HVAC appointment. I had to go out and buy warmer clothing and I even invested in a portable heating unit. I have to bring it into whatever room I happen to be occupying!
