This year, the people I was with and I are having a easily hard time getting our current home warm. It doesn’t matter what the people I was with and I do, there is consistently a chill in the air. I have gone through the condo & evaluated for cracked windows & for spots where the air could be getting in. It is only the end of September & the people I was with and I have already gone through an entire tank of oil. I hate to see what is going to happen when it gets easily cold. The other day, my granddaughter came over to our house. She was in her dining room, wrapped up in a blanket, with the space furnace running. I asked her if she was all right, & she told me that it was easily freezing in her room. I went to check everything out, even though I couldn’t figure out where the draft was coming from. I then decided to check downstairs. Her dining room is directly over the garage. When I got to the garage, I thought I knew what the problem was. The garage door was partially open, & there seemed to be a lot of freezing air coming through. I talked to my partner & I told him that something had to be done to get rid of the draft. It was too early in the season to be this freezing & used this much oil through the oil furnace. She evaluated everything out & then she called the Heating plus A/C corporation. It didn’t take them long to realize that the people I was with and I had a small leak in the oil line, & that was where the people I was with and I were losing our oil, however there was also a crack in the HVAC duct. The freezing breeze coming from the open garage door, was going right up through the duct labor & into the house.
