Having known more about HVAC from my recent job in the local heating business, I suspected that the air conditioning filter was clogged or the vents were covered in rust
I had persistent flu that had almost refused to listen to the medicine I had been prescribed by my doctor. So I decided to have an early night and ignore my friend’s request to go out partying. I made some chicken soup for dinner and after taking a hot bath, I drank the flu concoction that mum had insisted I take before bed. Since the drugs I was taking made me drowsy, I drifted off to very deep sleep. I was startled by the high-pitched ringing of the smoke detector, which I thought was the trumpet indicating the coming of Jesus. My heart was pounding so hard against my chest I thought the neighbors could hear it. After inspecting the house, I discovered that the smoke was from the gas furnace. I had to turn it off and open the windows to let out the smoke. I initially thought that the heating device was on fire but it was not burning. Luckily I had an electric heater that could keep me warm until the morning. Having known more about HVAC from my recent job in the local heating business, I suspected that the air conditioning filter was clogged or the vents were covered in rust. I could not really know until when the a/c rep finished the boiler repair. The climate control tool was also broken and despite the cooling install being completed a couple of months ago, the technician suggested we do quality AC service on the indoor air cleaning system to ensure that the fumes from the leaking oil heater had not clogged up the unit. I wished that I had initially fitted the radiant heater as such a system did not require any maintenance but it was fairly costly to install.
