The HVAC professional did pass along that had I gotten the HVAC heating maintenance, this would never have happened
Whatever happened to cause that sound from the basement, it definitely got my attention. By the time I had my robe on, I knew it had to be the gas furnace and I was already cussing myself. I hurried to the basement as fast as I could. When I got down there, I could smell acrid smoke in the air and hear the ticking of hot metal. I knew that couldn’t be good. It was so cold outside that there was no way we were getting through the night without some HVAC heating. So I went back upstairs to call the HVAC company. My wife met me in the kitchen with a pair of space heaters. I think had it not been in the single digits, we might have tried to get through the night. But she and I both knew a pair of space heaters just wasn’t going to get it done. I sure didn’t want to have the pipes freeze and have a whole other repair bill for that. So I called for emergency HVAC service and gritted my teeth. The HVAC technician took hardly any time at all to get to us. I think he was there in like 15 minutes. I literally only took him about 25 minutes to fix whatever was wrong with the gas furnace. What I do know for sure is it was a worn part. The HVAC professional did pass along that had I gotten the HVAC heating maintenance, this would never have happened. I knew this of course when I started cussing myself on the way to the basement because I forgot.
