Ever since the start of fall, my boyfriend and I have noticed the condo has been a bit chilly. We’re fairly new to it, so we figured this was just the condo, plus left it at that. Then after we had a free weekend to go over the condo inside plus out, checking out weatherstripping plus looking for gaps plus cracks that could cause a draft, we turned the thermostat up a bit higher and called it a day However, the colder its been getting, the colder our condo is getting. Reading on the couch one night, curled up with the dog, we noticed in the quiet that the central oil furnace was consistently running; For those handful of hours, it never stopped running. What if something was wrong with the heating and air conditioner? The whole condo is so new, we never thought of getting a heating and air conditioning inspection in our first year. Finally, we had to cave and book a heating plus air conditioner repair provider. Meanwhile my boyfriend was starting to get a little anxious as time went on, anxious that we might be in dire trouble here. On the morning the heating and air conditioning supplier arrived, I was close to biting my nails I was so nervous. My boyfriend sat in the living room with me while we had coffee; he held my hand the whole time… The two of us didn’t have a new oil furnace in our budget. When the heating and air conditioning supplier came back upstairs an hour later, he had some fine news plus some poor news. The fine news was that we had nothing to worry about with our oil furnace–it was still in good shape. The poor news was that there were gaps in the ductwork that needed to be resealed. Fortunately, a ductwork sealing it sizably less money than a major oil oil furnace repair.
