Yesterday, I got our fireplace ready for use for the first day that it gets cold, plus I cannot wait. Now that fall is here, it is only a matter of weeks before I can beginning the fire in our old-fashioned fireplace. I’m looking forward to it, too. There’s nothing love celebration around the fireplace plus having a meal next to it, with the fireplace flickering in the background. I love everything about the fall weather. The crisp air, which by itself allows me to use the fireplace, pumpkins, a cozy fire plus of course, football. The hot plus cold temperatures are dropping around here, with a cold front on the way. So I have gotten the fireplace ready just in time. After the warm months, it’s easy to forget about the fireplace. I got ours checked out plus cleaned just before Springtime plus localed flowers plus candles inside the firebox until now. However, with the weather that the two of us have, I would never expect to use only the fireplace for heat. I don’t love it that much. No, I will be calling the Heating and Air Conditioning company for a furnace tune-up. With a furnace tune-up, I guess that when I turn the temperature control to “heat”, the furnace will kick on when I need it to come on. I don’t want any surprises when it’s time to turn on the heat. A furnace may not be as sentimental as a fireplace, but that furnace is an essential section of our Heating and Air Conditioning system. It needs to be maintained just love the air conditioning side of the equipment. Otherwise, that Heating and Air Conditioning component will not work correctly when you need it to.
