Moving into a up-to-date lake house can be absolutely exciting, but not so much when you wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, but then you stub your toe against the dresser because you are closing your eyes and you still have the outdated layout in your head.
Of all the mishaps that could happen to me, stubbing my toe would have been a much more bearable scenario than almost cold to death at night.
If my numb toes and fingers were not enough indication of how cold it was, the number on the wireless control unit was enough to tell myself and others that the air conditioning system was on overdrive. Trying to fumble in the dark because I could not find the light switch was absolutely discouraging, however I finally did. I tried to reset the temperature, but it was still not working, so I ended up switching off the a/c and letting the oil furnace/heater replacement take over. By afternoon, the electric gas furnace had shut itself down. I could not help but blame myself for not having confirmed the state of the oil furnace before I finalized things. I could not know that I overlooked something as substantial as the heat and AC products. In the afternoon, I called the heating dealership and explained what was happening, and they sent an Heating, Ventilation and A/C tech immediately. She did the much-needed heating service and also oil furnace maintenance. The beach house had been in the market for a long time, and since the previous owners left, the Heating, Ventilation and A/C service system was neglected, leaving the boiler prone to dirt and other factors which stopped the heating floors from being functional. The oil furnace filter was all clogged up, and the heating industry would have been repulsed.
