We are hosting a big Saint Patrick’s Day party this year and we’re having trouble with our HVAC system.
Currently our heating system isn’t working right at all, and since we live in a very cold climate, that’s a big deal. You can’t exactly have a big party for Saint Patrick’s day when your oil furnace isn’t even working on a regular basis. Right now, whenever we turn the heating up on our thermostat, it’s pretty much hit or miss. We just never know if any warm air is going to come out of our heating vents or not! It’s pretty annoying, since the temperature in our house keeps going up and down. It’s going to wreak havoc on our heating bills for this month, I’m sure. I know that it uses more energy and even more oil from our oil furnace when the heating system has to continually keep raising the temperature in the house instead of maintaining a regular temperature for a long time. I hate the fact that the heating is having to run irregularly, but the fact is that I don’t really have money for any heating repairs at the moment. I used up my extra home repair budget on getting a new washing machine last month. I’m a little bit concerned about the heating issue, though. It’s only because we have this big party planned. Normally, I wouldn’t care that much if our house is too cold. We always manage to make it work or we end up using our little electric space heaters when the weather gets too cold. I just don’t like the idea of having to use electric space heaters when we have a house full of people.
