If you have been checking the temperatures at all, then you are probably aware that it is supposed to be 40 degrees during the nighttime next week! Next week! I can’t believe that it is already starting to get cold enough for a heating system.
Obviously, I don’t plan to use my furnace next week, because I think that a small space heater will meet my needs. My space heater is small and very efficient, and it is most effective when it is heating the house while the outside temperature is 40 degrees. However, I do realize one thing. Since they are breaking out the space heater next week, it will only be a matter of time before we have to adjust the thermostat and turn the furnace on. I don’t like winter, and I am not thrilled about the idea of having to use my furnace for the next few months. I like warmer outside the weather, and I like using an air conditioner in the summer. For some reason, the cold from the air conditioner feels a lot more friendly than the cold from the winter temperatures. Furnaces and heating systems are definitely nice to feel on the skin, but they remind us that if the power goes out, we would be utterly helpless. However, seasons are always coming an going, and I am just thankful that I have a working furnace that will keep me warm during the winter. I don’t know what I would do without my furnace. I would probably freeze to death or lose my water in my house.
