I called the first HVAC company that I could find, and they sent an HVAC technician to my house immediately
For the first few years, while I was living in my own house, I had been extremely lucky. I didn’t realize how lucky I had been, but we don’t realize those things until stuff starts falling apart in front of your eyes. For my few first years, I had had no trouble with the furnace or the air conditioner at my house. Both of the units looked like they were aging pretty rapidly, but neither one of the HVAC units had malfunctioned since I started living there. I had grown so used to the furnace working constantly that I didn’t realize it at first when my furnace had stopped working. I noticed one morning that my house felt cooler than it usually did during the winter. I walked over to my thermostat and realized that it was below temperature. I figured that it must be colder outside than usual, and I adjusted the thermostat to a warmer setting to kick the furnace on a higher setting. After a few more hours, it was significantly colder, and that was when I realized that the furnace probably wasn’t working properly. I had no idea what to do or who to call about fixing my furnace. I texted my dad, and he told me to look up HVAC companies in my area. I called the first HVAC company that I could find, and they sent an HVAC technician to my house immediately. He fixed my furnace and gave me a business card to call if I ever had trouble with my furnace or air conditioner in the future. This was to be the first of many HVAC troubles.
