We couldn’t figure out why the HVAC system wouldn’t work

Our oil furnace had been cleaned and serviced before winter… It was only in the first half of its life, and the HVAC serviceman told us there was little wrong; then all of us had insulation added to the windows and in the attic! My own hubby checked to make sure all the windows were shut tight, and the basement was weather-proofed.

  • All of us couldn’t figure out why the heating situation was so bad.

All of us had done everything that was commanded to make our oil furnace efficient, there was no way the two of us should have uneven heating. If the two of us had a single day where the HVAC system was keeping us comfortable, I would have been ecstatic, however that wasn’t the case, but every day was different. I would take our blazer off when the heat was running, and shortly after it turned off, I would have our blazer back on and I’d be shivering. My hubby was never cold, although she had a shirt close to him all the time. All of us were discussing the reasons behind the heating situation, and she said she had to have missed something. There were absolutely no concerns with the oil furnace, so she had to have missed something when she was doing the insulation. All of us were talking about the oil furnace as the two of us opted to go upstairs to get the Christmas decorations. My hubby had simply left the door ajar and you could feel the heat coming up the stairs… She had forgotten to close the attic door; our oil furnace was working overtime to heat the attic, which was nearly as hot as the home office. She smacked himself on the head and told myself and others she should have known the heating situation was her fault.
