The other morning when I woke up I could not believe how freezing my bed was! It felt as if I was laying on an ice block and the room itself was the temperature of Alaska.
It was then I figured out that my heater was broken.
And I had to call the local HVAC company to get heating repair right away before I froze my tail off and got really sick. I guess I was pretty lucky that I had a portable space heater tucked away in a closet that I nearly had forgot about. I pulled out the portable space heater and got it cranking pretty hard in my house before I went to the phone and called the local heating and air conditioning company. The heating and air conditioning company was very nice on the phone. They were actually going to try to get someone out the same day without charging me for emergency HVAC service. I thought this was very kind of them. The heating and air conditioning company we have in our area is family owned and small. Maybe this had something to do with it. I was so glad when their certified heating and cooling expert arrived and was ready to fix my heater. My portable space heater was going pretty well in heating the room I was in, but I needed my whole home heating back from my central heat and air conditioning system because it was super cold outside. We have pretty brutal winters here, and this was one of them.
