The leaves have turned, pumpkin spice is everywhere, and thank goodness for the portable heaters that we brought up from the freezing basement. We just experienced the first cold spell of the season, and my central heating system did not work. The fact that the heater made a moaning sound, and I heard noise from the outside HVAC equipment is not really a big surprise to me. It wasn’t working well last winter and I should have had the heating professional out to my house before turning it on. I just don’t have the money for an expensive heating repair, right now. Or anytime, really. However, I know that it is only going to get colder, so I’d better bite the bullet and get the HVAC company out here to fix my heater. I can’t go through the winter with only a portable heater. Even if I bought more portable heaters, it would prove to be quite an uncomfortable winter. So after another very cold sleepless night, I’ve decided to find an HVAC company that will help me get my central heating working again. I’ll go online to research HVAC companies in my area and see if they have any heating repair specials on their website. I’ll also need some financial help, just in case the heater repair is steep. Either way, these extra blankets and the portable heater just isn’t enough heat. I’m hoping that I’m calling this future HVAC company early enough in the season so that I am not too far down on their heating repair list of clients.
