Back when I was growing up, the boiler in our Grandparents’ basement used to startle me to death and so I never thought that I would end up with 1 in our own house. I consistently hated boilers because I was consistently afraid that they would end up blowing up on me while I was sleeping or something exhausting care about that. The boiler down in our Grandparents’ basement made all kinds of terrifying hissing noises and to me, it consistently seemed care about there was a monster down there in the basement whenever our Grandma made me go down there to get something for her. I consistently made 1 of our cousins go downstairs with me because I was afraid to go down there by myself. It wasn’t the same way during the Summer time though. It was only that way during the Wintertide when the boiler was hissing and steaming and making all kinds of terrifying noises. Whenever our hubby and I were looking for a modern condo for ourselves, 1 of the things that I told him that I wanted was a really wonderful high efficiency oil furnace. I also thought that made it really clear that I did not want a boiler system as our main source of heating. However, when he was looking for houses he ended up finding a condo that he appreciated that had a boiler in the basement. He had already fallen in care about with the condo by the time I went to look at it. When I saw that there was a boiler in the basement, I was pretty disappointed.
