I swear that it breaks down every winter season
Winter can be a difficult time of the year for everyone. The outdoor temperatures are cold and icy and there is snow on the ground for three or four months. The days are short and there is barely any sunlight when storms are passing through. It can be a hard time of the year to run into heating problems. I have two heaters in my house, just in case one breaks down. My mom and dad only have a gas furnace and it is absolutely on its last leg. The machine stopped producing heat this week and my mom was ready to replace and retire the old machine. My dad told my mom that he would fix the furnace. He absolutely didn’t want my mom to call the repair service, even though my mom practically begged my dad to let her make the call. The furnace broke down again and that was the third time during the winter. My mom probably would have called the repair service on her own, but my dad was ready to fix the problem when it occurred. The furnace in the house where my mom and dad live is about fifteen years old. I swear that it breaks down every winter season. I think they should have replaced the old equipment a long time ago, but my dad is pretty handy with a screwdriver. Last winter, my mom was ready to call the heating company, but my dad fixed the problem with the thermocouple. My dad made my mom wait three days before he finally broke down and agreed to spend the money.
