Being scared awake in the middle of the night is not my plan of a wonderful time.
And being scared awake by my gas oil furnace shutting down was even worse. But perhaps the worst thing of all is that this heating concern shouldn’t have happened at all had I done what I was supposed to do. I think that was the thing that made me more furious than anything else. But anytime I get yanked out of my bed in fear, I’m not going to be cheerful. When I heard the massive bang come from the basement, it nearly lifted me out of the bed. I had a feeling that it was the gas oil furnace but I was sure of it once I got about halfway down the stairs. I could stink a sort of hot metal stink that had a bit of an acrid component to it. It was in the single digits outside so the plan that the people I was with and I could get by on space furnaces until afternoon was out of the question. All that was left to do was make the dreaded cellphone call for emergency Heating, Ventilation & A/C service. There was no way I was going to subject my family nor the water pipes to sub cold temperatures. The Heating, Ventilation & A/C professional was able to get there fairly swiftly and made short labor of the repair. Of course, I was prepared for the stiff bill that comes with a late night Heating, Ventilation & A/C repair. However, the real kick in the teeth was when the Heating, Ventilation & A/C professional told me that had I gotten the heating maintenance done, none of this would have happened. Well, I’m not forgetting again. The genuinely next afternoon I signed up for the Heating, Ventilation & A/C repair plan.
