Last Winter time put our heating plan to the ultimate test! Luckily, I have constantly been the kind of oil furnace owner that has been proactive in ensuring that all manner of preventative service is done on my unit long before I have a real need for it; I never have expansive oil furnace service done any later than November. I urge my family plus friends to do the same, however for the most part, they do not need much encouragement; They do not mess around when it comes to protecting their families with adequate heating during the worst of the Winter time either! It can be a matter of life plus death in some areas. I recognize this was never more tploy for our community than last winter; Sporadically, the windshield brought the real think temperature to -50 degrees! This was the kind of cold that even our robust heating units were not meant to face; We absolutely had to bump our normal temperature up at least various degrees. I plus my family were also easily careful about opening exterior doors plus did everything the people I was with and I could to keep the heat inside the house where it belongs! I was also easily grateful that I had our house weather-stripped about a year ago to prevent the escape of heat plus the invasion of the cold! Even with these preventative measures it was exceptionally cold. We bundled up in several extra layers with thick socks plus slippers! You can bet the people I was with and I did not go outside for pretty much anything! Yet, our heating unit managed to create a relatively comfortable environment while the people I was with and I weathered the Winter time storm!
