Living in the north, you have to get used to dealing with extremely cold winters. In the section of the country where my partner and I live, it can drop to below freezing almost every single day of winter. When we first moved down here over ten years ago, all of our friends, family and neighbors kept on telling us that we needed to replace our old heated gas furnace before the winter season arrived. The heated gas furnace that was installed in our house was very old and not very well kept, but we were young at the time and didn’t feel the need to waste a bunch of money on a brand new heating unit! That really came around to hurt us, because our old heated gas furnace ended up breaking down on us in the middle of a really bad snowstorm. We tried to call the HVAC heating and cooling company first thing in the morning, but they told us that they wouldn’t be able to make it out to our place for at least another day due to the condition of the roads. By the time that the next day rolled around and we heard the HVAC repairman pull into our driveway, I thought that I was going to cry I was so excited. It was so cold in our house by that point that we could see our breath! After he fixed up the old heating unit and it warmed us up, we began to do some research on line looking for the biggest and the best heating unit we could find. We learned our lesson about being cheap on heating that day, and it will never happen again I promise you that!
