With the heating in the house set to a thermostat and a timer, I was able to pre-program it, setting it up to run at specific times. I’d never had a heater that allowed you to do that before, and I loved it. It was programmed to turn on about forty minutes before I came home from work, so the house was at a nice temperature for my arrival. Today, it was clear that something had gone wrong. I wondered what to do. I turned on all the elements on the stove, as well as the oven – leaving the door wide open. It was my attempt to warm the house for the night. If the morning came around and I was still no closer to a warm house, I’d call in a professional. I walked away from the heating controls, annoyed that I didn’t understand the inner workings of the heating system. I’d left a few dints in the heater’s casing, attempting to bash it back to life.
I switched on the computer as I walked back into the lounge room. I made myself a cup of tea, grabbed a notepad and a pen, and sat in front of the glowing screen. I’d had to have a few repairs done to air conditioners and heaters in the past, so I knew that Heating Melbourne was a reliable company. I looked up the phone number for the team at Heating Services Melbourne, just in case the heater didn’t magically decide to work tomorrow morning. I wanted to be ready, so I had the ability to pick up the phone and book an appointment first thing in the morning. I didn’t cope well in cold weather, so it was best for everyone if my heating was repaired as soon as possible. I just hoped the team from Ducted Heating Repairs Melbourne would have room to fit me in.
