I Swear It Was Really Cold

It’s only after something stops working that you realize how much you really appreciate its existence. My heater was having problems recently and I needed to get an HVAC repair in New York. Before the repairs happened, I had to go for a short time without working heat, and it was not a good experience. I might be a little bit dramatic when it comes to explaining how much I hate to deal with cold weather, but when I was at home sitting in the cold, it really felt like I was in the Arctic trying to keep from getting frostbite. I swear that I could see the cold air fog from my mouth while I was breathing.

I wore more clothes and even put on some gloves and a scarf to stay warm, but it felt like it wasn’t enough. During this time, I regretted all of those homes that I passed over because they had a fireplace with a chimney. I thought they would be too much of a hassle to deal with and I would dread having to clean them. Little did I know that my heater would go out one day and I would be wishing that I could light a fire in a fireplace to keep myself warm.

Eventually my problems with the heater were solved when I found the right repair company to come to my home and fix it. For some reason, the repair workers weren’t that cold. They said that the air felt like regular air to them. I don’t think the cold air that I was feeling was all in my head. Either way, it didn’t matter, because once they finished the repairs, I was able to turn the heater up as much as I wanted to and I could take off the gloves and scarf.
