It’s the end of May, & I’m still running the gas furnace non stop. The outside temperature rarely gets above forty degrees, & it snowed yeahterday. The lilac trees have budded & the daffodils are entirely blooming. There are robins hopping around in the snow, looking truly frigid & unhappy. The Spring season has arrived, & yet the weather is refusing to cooperate. I’m frustrated with the frigid un-even temperatures. I’m tired of wearing my wool coat & boots to go outside. I’m frustrated with spending the majority of my time trapped in the house, when there’s so much yard work that needs to be done. I do not care for spending a fortune on my heating bills, & I’m distraught about my furnace! Although I had the furnace professionally maintained in the early fall, it’s no longer operating at its best. The excessive workload has absolutely put a strain on the heating unit. It has begun to make some weird noises, & is no longer supplying as much heated air. I’ve needed to bump up the thermostat numerous times. The furnace is running for much longer cycles, & yet there’s frigid spots in several rooms. There’s also more dust flying around in the air. I am hoping the furnace can make it to the end of the season. I easily don’t want to face a malfunction & a overpriced repair, but there’s no way I could currently get by without heat. I’m being truly diligent about cleaning the after filter typically. Although I should really schedule an appointment with the local Heating & Air Conditioning company to have the furnace maintained again, I’d like to spend the cash on getting the cooling system ready for the summer.
