I used to work as an intern for a very demanding director.
The weather was striking hard, and on this particular day, it was especially severe, making the office seem like an oven.
The boss had enough and stormed out of the office, informing no one in particular that if no one investigated what was wrong with the central gas furnace, someone would lose their job. This sent everyone into a frenzy, and as the only intern, I was picked to ensure that everything was in order before the boss came the next day. Then I immediately called the local repair company to get a heating specialist who could fix the electric furnace. From all of the calls I made, it appeared that every heating professional was out on a house call attending to a brand-new home furnace. Just as I was about to give up hope, I received a call back from a heating contractor who said she would be at the office in an hour. After inspecting the electric heat pump, it was discovered that the unit required maintenance. After some time had passed, the office was back in business. Following the events of the day, I called the same serviceman to schedule an oil furnace tune-up for my unit at home. I had radiant floor heating that I completely shut during warmer times of the year due to the main system’s computerized thermostat. The zone control plan also made it easier to configure and make changes to the heating and cooling plan in the house in terms of temperature management.
