I didn’t think I could handle not having a furnace.

When our HVAC technician told us it was going to be a week before they could install a new furnace, I just looked at him.

  • I didn’t know what to say.

We had three children, and they couldn’t stay in a house that didn’t have heat. We could always put space heaters in the house, but no matter how many safety measures they took with them, I still didn’t want them in my house. I talked to the HVAC technician and asked if there was anything we could do to get the furnace more quickly. He said it wasn’t a problem having the furnace delivered more quickly. The problem was having two guys free so they could do the installation. My husband told him he could help with the installation. He was an electrician, and he had assisted an HVAC technician in installing furnaces and air conditioning unit. When he said he could have the furnace there in three days, we didn’t feel so bad. We knew we could go to my sister’s house, which was only two doors down from us, but we didn’t want to leave the house. I called my sister and told her about the furnace; then asked if she would let the kids sleep there until they installed the new furnace. I was sure she would say yes, and she didn’t disappoint me. Our kids weren’t happy not being in their own beds, but they loved my sister and her kids. It was like a sleepover, and they didn’t want to come home three days later.
