My unit had been behaving weirdly the whole of fall.
I had done minor concernshooting on it but it would get better for a afternoon then go back to its previous awful state.
It was making strange noises and I had noticed that the quality of indoor comfort was not the same. Boiler installation had been done over a decade ago and I knew it was time to get a modern heating unit. I had just been postponing the call to the heating corp. I paid for this delay a week into Winter when the electric gas furnace stalled and shut down just as I was settling down to start working. I switched to my oil oil furnace and space oil furnace for my heating and air conditioner needs as I waited for the Heating and A/C tech. It was unfortunate that these units did not use a wireless thermostat as I had to keep changing the temperature until I got the perfect one. When the experts came, they went ahead to dig up the earth where the geo heat pump was to be placed. Since it had rained heavily the previous night, there was a landslide and all I heard from the kitchen was a loud scream. One of the servicemen had fallen inside the hole but she was not completely buried. She only sustained minor cuts and bruises. She refused to call an ambulance and insisted she was fine. They proceeded to install the unit and even provided a pamphlet of energy saving help tips and a schedule for the first oil furnace/heater tune-up. I know the professional was shaken up and so was I. However, I was blissful that they had done a fine task and that the injuries on the young woman were not as serious.
