I can’t believe I forgot to schedule my gas furnace tune-up

I just about kicked myself when I realized that I forgot to make an appointment for the gas furnace tune-up.

This is something that is absolutely crucial to have done every single year.

This actually happened a few years back and the heating system broke down during the winter. Fortunately it was an unusually warm day so it wasn’t awful and the HVAC technician was able to get out to our place on the same day. He was able to get the heating system working with no issues and he was saying how we were lucky it wasn’t during a time that was freezing with snow coming down. He also said to be careful and try not to miss the tune-ups every single fall season. Well, we got into the beginning of the winter and when the snow started falling, that’s when I realized I hadn’t had the tune-up for the gas furnace. So I immediately got on the phone with the HVAC company. Surprisingly, they didn’t give me a hard time about doing this while it was snowing. In the meantime while the HVAC professional was working on the gas furnace, we just had a bunch of portable heaters working to keep the home nice and cozy. I told the HVAC professional how it slipped my mind to get the HVAC tune-up scheduled sooner. He laughed and said this thing happens all the time with people and it wasn’t such a big deal. He said the important thing was that I was getting it done and not skipping it altogether, because that could lead to devastating consequences.

I basically told my wife I would follow her anywhere

Before I ended up moving to the North, I lived out on the West Coast and it was a pretty amazing life.

The weather where I lived was amazing all year round and you hardly ever even needed the HVAC system to kick on to be comfortable in your home.

The only thing you really needed was a good humidifier to keep the proper humidity levels, because it was a relatively dry climate. School was interesting because all the classes were in different buildings across the campus, but it was awesome because the weather was always nice. I typically would eat my lunch outside with friends. I still keep in touch with my college buddies to this day, but I live further away than anybody would have hoped. Still, that’s where I met my wife at college and we became unbreakable. When she said she was heading back to the North after we graduated, I told her I was coming with her. That’s exactly how that went down too. These days, we have a nice home with a handful of children and our friends always come out to visit during the holiday season. It’s always fun entertaining guests these days with our lovely fireplace and radiant heated floors in our home. Everybody always jokes that they always make excuses to come out more because of our enjoyable HVAC system. Typically we host New Year celebrations and have firework shows and everything! We let everybody crash at our place, especially if they have been drinking, we take their keys until they are sober.
