I knew this day was coming, and have been planning for it for a long time. When I purchased this house, it was a bit of a fixer upper, and i knew that going in, and that I would need to sink some major cash into repairs within a few years. The home came with a absolutely old, absolutely run down gas furnace in the basement. It was working for rudimentary amounts of heating for the last 5 years, which is several years longer than predicted. Now the gas furnace has stopped working altogether. I don’t have a fireplace or any other source of heating aside from a few small space heaters, so it is needed that I get this fixed before the first coldsnap of winter comes! As freezing as the Winters get around here, a little electric space heating system is not going to be enough to get me through a whole Winter. I called around to a few local HVAC dealerships, and took advantage of the free inspection and estimate they all provided, and most of the offers are absolutely similar, however one of the heating and cooling specialists was a lot more friendly than the others, so I suppose I will do business with him, but he says he can have the whole modern heating and cooling system installed and working within a week, and I hope he can deliver. Cause winter is right around the corner!
