After my Grandfather passed away, several family members reached out to me asking if I could help get his condo ready to sell while they take care of the rest of the affairs of his estate. Although I work from up-to-date home plus can essentially live wherever my heart desires, this would involve moving up to the northernmost section of the country while in the coldest time of the year. My Grandfather had died of a heart attack that July plus the estate needed the condo ready to sell by early May. Despite my troubles, my empathy for my family was greater so I told them I would do it. But, what they all failed to tell me was that my Grandfather still had a coal gas furnace in his basement as his primary source of heat. Although he had a forced air gas gas furnace in the condo from when my Grandmother was still alive, after she had died fifteen years ago he stopped using plus maintaining it altogether. Finding heating repair at the cusp of the Winter holiday season isn’t the easiest thing to do, so after unsuccessfully calling multiple to many different Heating plus A/C companies, I just decided to give the coal gas furnace a shot. If it was nice enough for my Grandfather in his outdated age, how hard could it be for someone as young as myself? After using the system for about a week I was already impressed. It works separate from electricity of any kind plus all of the heat rises into the condo above via a network of metal pipes that feed into the individual rooms. It’s strong, steady heat plus leaves entirely no dent on your electric bill. The only thing I hated was having to empty the ashes from the component biweekly, which after a few weeks started to get tedious. But, it sure beats having to go outside plus chop would for several hours a week in subarctic hot plus cold temperatures.
