I had a really rough night last night because my central HVAC plan broke down on me! It happened around Midnight and there was no way I could call a HVAC company to send out a certified heat and air conditioner specialist at that hour.
Emergency heating and cooling home services in my area would have been the only way, and since this wasn’t actually a HVAC emergency I did not want to spend the money for that, but the reason it was not a HVAC emergency was because I have a nice electric fireplace in my living room.
The electric fireplace can heat up the room as if I had the central heating system running, so what I decided to do was go and sleep on the couch in the living room with the electric fireplace on full blast to heat up the room and make me nice and warm. Thankfully it worked out just fine. The following morning I called the local HVAC company to send out a certified heat and air conditioner specialist to service my central HVAC unit! They were able to get someone out there within a few hours. The service to my central HVAC plan cost around three hundred bucks for all that had to be done to service it. All was good and I was out three hundred bucks, however, at least my central HVAC plan was working good and I had real quality heating back into my home.
