Every year my friends and I go to the same mountain lake up in the mountain range we all grew up near. It’s cold up there, even in the summer, so having an above average heating system is a major plus! We spend most of our afternoons standing there together knee deep in the cool water of the lake, casting flies until the sun begins to set, and at that point, most of us are cold, and once we had arrived home we immediately turned on the heater. Unfortunately, a billowing cloud of dust/smoke emerged from the old HVAC equipment that we had been assured by the rental company would be perfect for our daily use. We abruptly switched off the furnace to discourage the fan from aggravating the dust and smoke combo further, and took off the heating control panel to see if there was anything we could do to maintain it. We discovered that this heating equipment had been dislodged from the old furnace that lay below the place in the basement, cold as a stone. As it was our first day in a relatively remote mountain town, we decided it would be in our best interest to attempt to repair this issue, and the next day, we reached out to the only HVAC company in town, who said they could send someone out tomorrow to repair the furnace and hopefully relink the heating system to the furnace! Lucky enough, the HVAC repairwoman knew her way around a furnace, and was able to maintain our issue quite quickly, just in time for us to use it when we returned from the lake that night.
