Last January, I had a concern with my gas furnace. Right around Christmas, it started making more noise than usual. I then noticed that my house felt freezing. At first, I blamed the unusually freezing weather, but after turning up the thermostat several times, I realized the furnace was no longer putting out as much heat. I tried calling a few local Heating & A/C dealers, but the timing was bad. With the Christmas holiday, they were all closed & charging higher fees for after-seconds service. Since the furnace was still operational, I decided to wait until the holidays were over. Unfortunately, the performance of the heating system continued to deteriorate. The sound levels grew louder, & the amount of heated air decreased. Plus, the air aroma unpleasant & there was abruptly a enjoyable deal of dust blowing around. The furnace eventually quit altogether. Trying to get ahold of a repair professional between Christmas & New Year’s is just about impossible. I finally managed to get an appointment, & the specialist promised to show up between 10AM to 4PM. I can’t even imagine why the business couldn’t slim his arrival time down a bit. I spent all afternoon without heat & waiting for him to show up. I didn’t dare take a shower, get groceries or even run the vacuum cleaner, because I was sad about missing him. The Heating & A/C business finally showed up at multiple o’clock. By that point, my house was freezing cold, & I was aggravated. He didn’t apologize & didn’t offer to remove his shoes. While I was thankful he was able to repair the furnace, he left a mess behind & cost myself and others a fortune.
