If something’s wrong, I want time to fix it, instead of having to rush a repair
I’d rather be over-prepared than caught with my long underwear dropped when winter weather hits. This is what motivates me to prepare for winter before it arrives, and it’s the deal around here. Our winters are long, snowy, and blustery cold, so it’s too late to deal with heating issues after the bottom falls out of the thermometer! So, I work during the summer and fall to prepare for winter weather in the coming weeks. My family has a good gas furnace that heats our home thoroughly. Before there’s even a hint of winter, I make sure the HVAC professionals come out to check it. If something’s wrong, I want time to fix it, instead of having to rush a repair. The furnace does a good job for us; we also have a backup heating source, an old-fashioned wood stove that helps us in the event of a power outage. I also have a plastic cover that goes over our HVAC, which keeps ice and the weight of snow off the delicate parts of our equipment, along with the fan.
