Today I finally had my HVAC repair in NYC done, and after it was finished, I turned on my heater and let it run for an hour. I had been without heat for a couple of weeks because I needed a bit more money before I could dedicate any to paying for a repair cost. Money has been pretty tight these days, especially after the holiday shopping rush. I bought a lot of items on sale, and I though that they were still too expensive. I probably should have just given everyone a cheap gift card, but what’s done is done, and I can only look toward the future.
In the time between when the HVAC system stopped working and when the repairs were done, I had to use an old space heater that I had in my closet. The heater was one that I had back when I was living in an apartment. It served me well there, even though it takes a while to get the room heated up. When I first turned it on late last year, the fan inside of it was making funny noises for a bit. I guess not turning it on for a while made the fan get stuck a little bit, and it needed to do some rotations to get back into working order.
While the fan served as a good enough replacement, it was still no match for a full blown HVAC system that could heat up an entire home. I had to do something about my HVAC system, so once I had the money, I looked online for a company to fix it and found one that could do it for a reasonable price. It didn’t take long for the repairs to happen. Hopefully I won’t need to pull that space heater out again.
