Living in the Northeast, the Winter seasons can be entirely cold. The coldest time consistently seems to be in late February or February. The heating system on our home was over 20 years old. It was care about waiting for something bad to happen. And on the coldest day of February our oil furnace stopped certainly working. Every one of us woke up to a chill in the home plus I figured my wife has just turned it down for the night which she sometimes did. But when I turned up the temperature control plus waited for the usual sound of forced air through the vents, nothing happened. I went to the basement in my bathrobe to take a look. I did not have any experience with HVAC systems so it was a waste of time for me to look at the chilly oil furnace. Every one of us had used a local oil furnace plus A/C company several times to have the unit cleaned plus worked on. Their sticker was on the oil furnace unit plus I gave them a call while I was still in the basement in my bathrobe. They said they had had a number of calls that morning but could be to our location in about 4 hours. That sounded nice however I knew it would be a chilly 4 hours. My wife decided to make a batch of cookies to hot up the kitchen. Not only did the home smell great from the cookies but it helped hot up the room where the people I was with and I sat drinking coffee wearing several layers of clothing. The HVAC repair company came out just as promised plus with only a few checks of our system they determined that the people I was with and I needed a current thermocouple on our oil furnace. He had 1 on the truck plus within an hour it was installed plus the people I was with and I could suppose the welcome heat coming from our vents. Every one of us had feared that the people I was with and I might need a whole current oil furnace but thankfully a small repair plus repair call were all that the people I was with and I needed.
