It was Christmas Eve & my heater abruptly stopped laboring.
My heater works off of a boiler system. I learn online that you can refill those yourself. You just open up the special section & add more water, then unfortunately, my boiler system doesn’t have a spot like that. It appears to need a specialized tool in order to refill it. I called up a boiler repair supplier but, of course, they couldn’t come out for almost a week. I tried calling different boiler companies & was told the same thing by every single one of them. Thankfully I had a few space boilers in the garage, however one of them is a forced air space heater & the other one works by convection. Between the two space boilers my house was livable from Christmas into the current year. It wasn’t exactly comfortable though; Without the boiler laboring I had to bundle up to stay warm. Even with the space boilers on, I could never get warm enough. However, the space boilers did keep me from chilly to death. They also kept my pipes from chilly. So that’s good. Two days into the current year the boiler repair supplier came out & refilled my boiler finally. So now I am toasty warm again. I’m grateful for that. I know next year I will be preemptive in my boiler repair though & have the boiler repair supplier come out & top off my boiler way back in November or November at the latest. Then I won’t be stuck with no heat on Christmas afternoon.
