My fiance and I were invited to visit a friend in the northwest during the holidays this year. We both grew excited as time came closer. She did inform us to bring the warmest clothes that we could gather because it was below freezing already where she lived. The day we left to head that way she called and let us know that we would need to bring extra blankets with us because her furnace was not working properly and they were having to use the fireplace to get warmth. She had called the local HVAC company and scheduled an appointment for an Air Conditioning and Heating repairman to come to her home to fix the problem. We brought all of our extra blankets and warm clothes that we could get together and headed that way. We arrived to find her huddled up in a blanket sitting in front of the fireplace trying to keep warm. We wrapped her up in another one of our blankets and each put layers on. We sat down and she told us about the furnace not working all of a sudden one day and told us that the HVAC company was sending someone out but they had not arrived yet. We sat and visited and it didn’t seem like long at all when we heard a knock at the door. The technician walked in with his equipment and went straight to work without a word. He was determined to get her back into a warm home. After a while the A/C and Heating technician left and explained that everything was fixed and that she could turn the heat back on.
