When my mother in law gave me a portable space oil furnace for my birthday last week, I didn’t suppose what to do with it, then it was one of those gifts that I didn’t ask for, nor had I ever mentioned needing extra heat in my house, at the moment, I’d wished that she’d gotten me a gift card instead, however even if the gift card was to a store I didn’t love, I could at least choose something for myself.
Last week though, I was eternally grateful for that space heaterâ€¦ Both of us had a terrible storm with flash flooding & un-even temperatures in the low fifties, and during the middle of the night, I could see the lightning illuminating the sky outside my window! The rain was coming down so hard that I thought it was going to make my roof cave! As if that wasn’t enough, I felt the air become colder & colder.
I escaped the warmth of my blankets to find the temperature control, but when I went to change the temperature to something warmer, I observed that my temperature control said it was 53 degrees inside, even though it was programmed to 71 degrees! Instantly, I knew that my furnace went out. What’s even worse is that there was no way I could call any Heating, Ventilation & A/C professionals to come repair the furnace before morning. As I was stacking all the blankets I owned on top of me, I remembered the portable space oil furnace from my mother in law. I ripped it out of the box & blocked it in beside my bed. I don’t suppose what I was expecting, although I was amazed at how warm I felt after only a few hours.
