The last thing I want to do is get a heating tune up during the holidays. First, most HVAC businesses are closed during the holidays. If they do allow you to call them, you have to pay for HVAC emergency service. This means you are getting a heating tune up for double the price. Next, it is hard to get an appointment during the holidays because it is a busy time of year. Everybody wants the heating system looked at the moment the weather turns cold. A lot of people procrastinate and wait until the last moment. I don’t want to call for a heating service date and then not get one for weeks after it. Lastly, I have a lot of errands, work and children issues to handle during the holidays. I don’t want to have to deal with my heating system on top of it. The issue I am running into though is that the weather has not turned. Halloween and Thanksgiving have gone by. Our weather is quite beautiful and still warm out. I don’t need or want to run my heater. I also don’t want to pay for a heating tune up, get it and then have the heater sit for another month. The heater will have gotten dirty, sluggish and the heater tune up would have been a waste. However, the alternate option would be calling when the weather turns cold. Then, I would be fighting for a heater date around Christmas time. I can’t even imagine the expense. So right now I am hopeful that I can wait until after the holidays to think about healing.
