The local heating supplier was having a raffle ticket draw to raise cash for charity and provide quality heating to the needy.
They announced the draw to the locals, who were all invited.
I made sure to attend because one of the prizes was a complimentary heat pump service. My heating unit was due for annual service, even though I was broke. I had just bought another motorcar for the supplier and needed more cash for repair. I have a lucky streak regarding draws, as I consistently win something, no matter how small. The homeowner solutions supplier organizing the event had a hat filled with random numbers they would shuffle and option the winning cards. Before starting the draw, the Heating and Air Conditioning professionals took questions from the audience about maintaining the longevity and standard function of the heating equipment, including the electric oil furnace. A question I often see in such gatherings is whether a homeowner can install or run a oil furnace/heater tune-up independently. I have researched the same and discovered that if you are not a qualified Heating and Air Conditioning worker, you cannot do the process as it needs special unit and knowledge. Another interesting question I heard was whether an seasoned program could still provide quality indoor comfort. One of the Heating and Air Conditioning dealers answered this by saying it could as long as it was well taken care of by frequent repair. When the questions were over, the heating company drew the ruffles, and I had the winning number. My dual fuel program would at least be serviced and for free! The experts were at our house the following week to run repair.
