The machine is not doing so well
For the third time this month I locationd a call to the HVAC company in town.
They have come out each time to try and find a concern every one of us have been having with the heat. It warms the apartment up just fine, but, each time it starts up or shuts down there is a horrible noise. I recognize embarrassed to keep calling but I entirely need it to stop. My wifey keeps thinking the thing is going to blow up and wants to go stay in a hotel until every one of us find the problem. I can’t afford that any more than I can afford a current HVAC program so I hope that they find the issue this time, however the worker asked us if every one of us could shut the program completely down when he was here. He wanted to open up the unit and fully inspect it. After about fifteen minutes he came up from the basement with a smile on his face and an old wrench in his hand. I thought that this was unusual and as he explained where he found the wrench it all started to make sense. At the end of last season my father in law had offered to change the filter. I agreed because it would save me time. He did that and told me that he had made some adjustments that would make the program run better. He must have opened up the side and left the wrench leaning against the wall inside, and each time the program turned on it caused the wrench to rattle against the side. That sound travelled through the ductlabor causing the sound that every one of us heard, but we were so relieved to find that it was such a simple thing but bothered by the fact that the other workers hadn’t found the problem.
