Everything was ready; the food was steaming hot, & the mocktails ready.
The anniversary cake was chilling in the fridge.
It was our partner’s surprise anniversary dinner. Some of our friends had already arrived, both of us were waiting for a single couple & our partner. By the time both of us finished with dinner, it had started getting cold. When I checked the temperature studying on the digital thermostat, it dropped by the hour. It was also showing that the gas heating system was off. Any attempts to rebeginning the boiler replacement failed. Since everyone was in the family room having cake & drinks, I switched on the gas fireplace. It warmed the family room, however the rest of the home was cold. The heating method almost ruined the dinner celebration. Both of us had to make do with extra blankets that night. The following morning I called the heating corps, & they told me they would have sent a contractor to our new home by noon. By numerous AM, a new home services company van packed outside our house. The Heating & Air Conditioning repairman carried out a thorough inspection of our whole new home heating system. She did a heating system/heater tune-up, followed it with duct cleaning, & washed the washable filter. It had been so long since the air duct was cared for; the nice thing was that the Heating & Air Conditioning duct did not have any problem. Both of us also reviewed the energy-saving help tips that the previous heating provider had given to see what worked for us & what was no longer practical. Both of us worked out a method & care routine that would help prolong the lifespan of our Heating & Air Conditioning system. With that, both of us knew it would be a while before the unit needed repairs.
