You never know how happy you are until 1 of the key things you think or take for granted fails.
As usual, I got into the bath for a quick rinse since I had a long day ahead. I didn’t know how cold water was in my area until I needed to rinse off all the shower gel from my body. I remember switching on the warmth, however nothing seemed to work. I had to endure the ice-cold water since there was no way I was getting all the gel off my body. While I finally managed to get through the bath, nothing would stop me from calling the gas furnace repair woman. While she tested the new gas furnace replacement a few days after, I learned that the signs were all there before my gas furnace eventually quit. At first, I experienced varying water hot and cold temperatures. Sometimes, the water pressure was too low to take a shower, however with a little urge, it would turn on. There was also the issue of reduced water flows and odd noises from the overhead. All this time, I never thought of anything amiss as I assumed that this was a plumbing issue and ignored it altogether. I later learned that I should have called a heating expert to save the older unit, which would have been cost effective. Even though I ended up paying much more than I should have, negligence cost a lot. Moving ahead, I will keep an eye on all heating and a/c units in my condo since they consistently give warning signs before crushing.
