When you live in the north while every one of us were in winter, you think what is to be expected. You must prepare for the unpredicted snowfalls, setting your alarm earlier for task so there is time to scrape ice off of your car & convincing yourself not to go to bed by several in the night just because it is dark outside. Wintertime often makes me recognize unmotivated to do much & gives me more time than needed to catch up on social media & posts for recipes & projects that I will ultimately never get around to. The other month my Winter routine had a wrench thrown right at it. I woke up to an particularly cold house. I was in a rush to get to task so before I left I just cranked up the thermostat temperature & hoped for the best when I came home, but now, instead of even starting to fathom worst-case scenario that my furnace was broken & I would have to spend money for a furnace repairman & perhaps a current furnace all together, I decided to put my social media posts finally to the test. With today’s Internet, you can literally find any do-it-yourself repair through step-by-step videos or write-ups. I found websites that gave me a few options about what could be wrong with my heater. I ended up spending a lot of frustrating minutes trying to figure out if it was a blown fuse, an overloaded motor, a blown power switch or just a faulty thermostat. I ended up making more of a mess of my oil furnace because I tugged & pressed on things I shouldn’t have. I know following do-it-yourself furnace repair videos are a lot trickier than they lead you to believe. I should have called an Heating & Air Conditioning professional right from the start.
