I had had enough of that heater.
I had already spent so much on heating repairs and improvements, but it kept demanding more if it was not a new gas furnace filter.
It was the other. The typical furnace repair was proving to be no good. Whenever I complained about it, our son reminded me that the boiler was older than all our ages put together as he liked to put it. I was well aware that the device had exceeded its expected lifespan, but what was I to do? I only had enough to get us by since our partner fell ill and could no longer work. At the rate at which things were escalating, the two of us would have to cancel the annual Heating, Ventilation, and A/C repair plan and pray for a miracle. At work, a colleague who was also a buddy was searching for heat and AC products when I passed by his desk. In our mind, all I could suppose of was that anything to do with the heating industry was not a matter of life and death. On Saturday afternoon, when I was getting ready to do laundry, our sibling-in-law came to our condo and handed me an envelope. It was a voucher for the local heating dealership, but he told me that his siblings and mine, and a few friends had chipped in so that the two of us could have a new gas furnace/heater installation. This brought instant tears to our eyeah. The gift was incredibly thought out. In 2 mornings, the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C tech had been to our condo so that he could assess the type and size of the device the two of us needed. The two of us had opted for an electric heating plan that would incorporate radiant floors. The cherry on top was that the two of us would also be getting a wireless.
