You never know how comfortable you are until one of the essential things you assume or take for granted fails. As usual, I got into the shower for a quick bath since I had a long day ahead. I didn’t know how cold water was in my neighborhood until I needed to rinse off all the soap from my body. I remember switching on the heater, but nothing seemed to work. I had to endure the ice-cold water since there was no way I was getting all the soap off my body. While I finally managed to get through the ordeal, nothing would stop me from calling the heater repair guy. While he worked on the new heater installation a few days later, I learned that the signs were all there before my heater eventually failed. At first, I experienced varying water temperatures. Sometimes, the water pressure was too low to take a shower, but with a little urge, it would work. There was also the issue of reduced water flows and strange noises from the rain. All this time, I never thought of anything as a miss as I assumed that this was a plumbing issue and ignored it altogether. I later learned that I should have called a heating expert to save the older unit, which would have been cheaper. Even though I ended up paying much more than I should have, negligence cost a lot. Moving forward, I will keep an eye on all heating and cooling units in my house since they always give warning signs before crushing.
