Sitting next to a flickering fireplace is joyous to me, especially while snuggling under a comfy blanket with a great book. Saturday pigskin with the heated fireplace, reminds me of my youth. In the Winter months, my dad regularly had the pigskin games on the TV, and a fire in the fireplace… Now I’m the dad of the house, and I love my Winter pigskin games. I can be found resting by the fireplace rooting my number one team on to victory, while my wifey bakes a pumpkin pie in the dining room. Thankfully, we have a well-actually working furnace that will keep the beach house hot while in the cold Winter months. The fireplace is fantastic for ambiance, but not so fantastic for heating the house. In fact, I had the air conditioning tune-up last Springtime, but now it’s time for the furnace tune-up. I don’t want to take any occasions on whether or not the furnace will job when it needs to. So I shall have the Heating & A/C provider over to check the furnace out to ensure a well-heated and safe wintertime. I have multiple portable gas furnaces for emergencies, but they are to be used only for emergencies. I undoubtedly don’t want my teenagers moving portable gas furnaces around my house. They can barely keep up with their university books, let alone a portable heater. They would just leave the gas furnace on in an empty room, causing a possibly dangerous situation. Or I can opt to ensure that my furnace will job when I turn it on, and the teenagers will not have to deal with the portable gas furnaces at all.
