I worry about trusting outside shops and services to take care of me. I’d like to be the sort of person who was self-sufficient, so I did not have to worry about contacting others when something went wrong for me, then but, alas, I am not a handy individual. This is how I wind up in problematic situations with appliances all around the home – including the heating and air conditioning unit, most recently. The other afternoon, my HVAC plan easily ruined my afternoon. I had honestly no method that there was anything going wrong with my indoor air handling devices before the morning when the forced air furnace stopped. For the past 8 years I have been using the same bullet proof indoor air temperature control plan that came with my apartment. I have never once had an issue with temperature or air quality control before in the past. Then, last week I woke up and found that my indoor air temperature was chilly, especially compared to temperature control settings. There was no warm air passing through my air vents and it felt as though the heating plan had stopped operating earlier. I tried to mess with the heating plan and temperature control for a few minutes before I eventually decided I needed to call my central HVAC specialist for expert help with the heating and air conditioning system. When I called to arrange my appointment, there was no answer on the other end. I called the shop a dozen times, but the line wasn’t being answered. I found out later that their front desk worker quit that morning, so there was no one answering phone calls through the heating and cooling repair shop to receive my oil furnace inspection request, really wish I didn’t count on them.
