There’s nothing like coming in from the cold to a warm, cozy house.
And on a day like the ones we’ve had this week, when the snow is falling and the temperatures outside are sub-freezing, I’m especially happy to have central heat.
People who do not have central heat often rely on area heating systems or fireplaces to keep their homes warm, but central heat feels more efficient and convenient. Maybe it’s because my gas furnace is in the basement, out of sight and out of mind, so I do not worry about it. Or, maybe it’s because I do not have to constantly monitor the temperature in my home and adjust the heat accordingly! Either way, I’m grateful to have central heat on days like these, when the temperature outside is below freezing and there is frost on all of my windows. If my gas furnace ever goes out, I know that there are plenty of HVAC professionals out there who will be overjoyed to help me get it up and running again. For best performance, keep your system maintained with a maintenance plan, so you don’t have to go without heat ever again in your life. My feet ache when it is chilly, and I am thinking about getting some radiant floors installed, if the price is in my range. I have wool socks, but I keep wearing them out, and am tired of buying new ones every month. I’ll research my options.
