I know that I put my furnace through a lot of stress and struggle every time the cold season rolls in.
For several years I was extremely reluctant to adopt an animal. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely wanted to have pets in my life. I enjoy having furry creatures to take care of and I enjoy their company in my life. However, I felt a lot of pressure to find the perfect companion for myself. All of this worry and concern had the effect of delaying my attempt to adopt a single pet. Eventually, I wound up finding an adorable puppy and scooping him up right away. However, now I’m wondering if I made a major mistake after all of my time trying to come up with the best plan. You see, it turns out that my new dog has some dissimilar opinions about life. Particularly, he is not a big fan of my forced air furnace in the middle of winter. I guess I should have considered the temperature preferences of my new pet when I saw his thick, fuzzy coat. He definitely has a lot more insulation than I do to contain his internal heat. Personally, I am always extremely cold. If I don’t have my heater running at full blast I might as well be standing outside in a blizzard. I spend a lot of money on my central heating system, both in regards to my energy bills and my routine HVAC repairs. I know that I put my furnace through a lot of stress and struggle every time the cold season rolls in. Now, I have a dog in the house who absolutely hates my temperature control plan. Whenever the heating system kicks into gear I literally hear my dog moan as he starts panting. I’m not sure what to do about my indoor air temperature issue… Except to build a really nice dog house so he can stay outside.
