Where I live, most people actually have a secondary furnace… During the frosty months, if you don’t have a secondary furnace, you will freeze to death before someone can get to your property plus repair the furnace.
Winter time starts in early September plus lasts until late May or early June! Last cold season, I had my furnace thoroughly tested plus cleaned, but that didn’t mean I would not have any serious setbacks.
My primary furnace broke while in a blizzard, and by the time I got home from work, it was so freezing in the property that I called my sibling plus asked her to keep the kids until I could get the heating equipment repaired or the alternate furnace running… I wanted the property to be hot before my kids came into the house. My husband got home shortly after I did, plus he went into the garage to get our other furnace running. Fortunately, it didn’t take long before we could actually feel the heat coming from the air vents. I was so grateful my husband had gotten home early that morning. I wasn’t sure if I could have switched furnaces on my own. I called my sibling plus told her I would be over to grab the kids up in fifteen minutes, but the group of us got our furnace running again, plus a free lunch out of the deal. Now, we only had to focus on waiting for the HVAC specialist to get out his snowmobile plus get to our property once the blizzard ends. I can only hope it doesn’t take especially long.
