What’s even worse is that there was no way I could call any Heating, Ventilation and A/C professionals to come repair the oil furnace before morning.
When our mother in law provided me a portable space furnace for our anniversary last month, I didn’t recognize what to do with it, however it was one of those gifts that I didn’t ask for, nor had I ever mentioned needing extra heat in our house, at the moment, I’d wished that she’d gotten me a gift card insteadâ€¦ Even if the gift card was to a store I didn’t love, I could at least choose something for myself; Last month though, I was eternally grateful for that space heater, the people I was with and I had a terrible storm with flash flooding and temperatures in the low fifties. During the middle of the evening, I could see the lightning illuminating the sky outside our window. The rain was coming down so hard that I thought it was going to make our roof cave! As if that wasn’t enough, I felt the air become colder and colder. I escaped the warmth of our blankets to find the thermostat; When I went to change the temperature to something warmer, I noticed that our thermostat said it was 53 degrees inside, even though it was programmed to 77 degrees! Instantly, I knew that our oil furnace went out. What’s even worse is that there was no way I could call any Heating, Ventilation and A/C professionals to come repair the oil furnace before morning. As I was stacking all the blankets I owned on top of me, I remembered the portable space furnace from our mother in law. I ripped it out of the box and clogged it in beside our bed. I don’t recognize what I was expecting, but I was amazed at how warm I felt after only a few minutes.
