There is nothing worse than when the heating method just won’t turn on… However every year, I run our oil furnace to that point. While you would figure that I would learn, but nope, I literally kill our oil furnace once a year. However the reason is that I do honestly nothing with it. I don’t even change the oil furnace filter because I just plain forget… So all that dust and dirt goes right into the heater. The heating method then works super hard and long hours since it is filled with grime. Eventually our oil furnace starts making some horrible noises, making me aware that it is dying. That is where I do a little inside dusting and hope it works. Nope, the oil furnace then whines and pleads with me for a few more weeks. Then it eventually quits. Not having a oil furnace turn on honestly stinks. I have electric heaters in our broom closest handy for this. I then need to run them all day, everyday until I can get a heating and A/C supplier over to do the expensive oil furnace repair. You would assume that I would be on it with oil furnace repair by now. I have suffered long bouts of frigid temperatures with no heating. I have spent time, energy and good effort to deduce the problem. Nothing seems to motivate me to keep up with heating repair all year long… All I would need to do is get an oil furnace tune up early on and manage to change the oil furnace filter once. If I did that, I would save myself a lot of time and stress in the Wintertime.
