Thousands across the country are experiencing below zero temperatures this month. Beer below zero on a hot summer day is always a great idea, but your car being buried below heaps and heaps of snow is never fun. You may fill your social media posts with snow photos and wear layers of clothes to post online, but deep inside, you’re probably longing for some steaming hot clam chowder and warm snuggles as much as your freezing dog does.
Importance of a Heated Home
You can wear a beanie, ear muffs, mittens, and three layers of jackets to keep your body warm, but nothing feels as comfortable and really warm as a properly heated room, according to industry experts like Kennedy Air Conditioning. You may not have a furnace, but perhaps you have a heating and cooling system installed in your home. Imagine going outside just to buy some instant ramen from a convenience store, braving the cold, and then coming back home to find your thermostat broken. What would you do then?
Perhaps you would panic and freeze slowly while regretting the time your dad advised you to call the local heating and cooling system expert for regular HVAC maintenance. This is when you realize just how important it is to have a heated home.
Too bad you can’t call dad right now, eh?
So you can try to negotiate and ask for advice. This, of course, will only end up with you hearing a mouthful from dad or a friend: have your HVAC system checked before summer and before winter to ensure that every little important part inside the machine works fine.
So, you try to heat that instant ramen you bought and pray to the gods that it will be enough to bring color to your cheeks. You’re mildly satisfied with the instand noodles, get back to your Netflix marathon, and invite the dog on your lap because perhaps you’ll keep each other warm in your non-heated room. Ideal as it may sound, you might as well just call the repairman and get it all over with.
Always make a mental note to call the maintenance man and get your heating and air conditioning unit checked on the regular.
