Last winter my central heating and air conditioning system took a major dump! That is the only way I can describe it.
It was totally out of nowhere and right in the middle of a huge cold front of freezing rain and snow.
Having a heater in the house was very important, and I had no central heating! I called the heating and cooling company to send out a certified heat and a/c specialist to repair my central heating and air conditioning system unit. But after they looked at it, they told me there was nothing they could do. It was completely dead and time for a brand new and most up to date central HVAC unit! That is not something that could happen overnight. A new heating and air conditioning system had to be selected and ordered, then an installation had to be scheduled. This could take a few weeks, and there was no way I could live without any kind of heating! So rather than spend tons of money living in a hotel for a few weeks, I acted on impulse and came up with a good idea. And that was to go out and buy a few portable space heaters. And let me tell you, this was a great idea. Because these portable space heaters were able to keep my house nice and warm wherever I had them at! They would actually heat a huge room in a matter of minutes. That is how powerful they were. So the portable space heaters got me by the few weeks I had no central HVAC system.
