They paid for a hotel down the street and my son and I moved in.
Two nights ago my son woke me up and told me he was cold. It was then that I realized that it really was cold in the house. I got up to check on the furnace and discovered that it was not working. No matter how much I messed with the thermostat, it would not kick on. I used our emergency space heater in my bedroom and my son and I camped out but it was still rather chilly. First thing in the morning I called our landlord and he called out a furnace repairman right away. Unfortunately, the furnace fix was going to take a few days because there were parts that needed to be ordered. Since we are new to the area, I really didn’t have anybody my son and I could stay will so I decided to rent a hotel. That’s when it dawned on me, my renter’s insurance covers hotels if we can’t stay in our home for some reason. Would they cover us if we don’t have heat? I called up my representative and found out that they do in fact cover the hotel costs while my furnace is being repaired. They paid for a hotel down the street and my son and I moved in. The heater works great here. This whole thing is kind of annoying but we have decided to treat it like a mini vacation. Besides, soon enough the heater will be working again in our home and we can move back in. In the meantime, have free breakfast and a freshly made bed every night is not bad.
