I am running out of patience with the chilly weather and the high costs of heating. We had a chilly and rainy summer, and when the fall began temperatures dropped and I was forced to crank up the gas furnace. I first turned up the control unit and activated the heater over Labor Day weekend and the gas furnace has been running ever since. For the past seven months, the windows have been shut and the same stale air hangs in the house. It smells musty and unpleasant. And dirty. No amount of cleaning seems to make any difference. The gas furnace is blowing dry, dusty air into every room in the house, all day long. Without some ventilation, there’s no way to freshen up the house. I thought about contacting a Heating dealer and investing in some type of air quality accessory. I’ve done all the research on air cleaners, humidifiers and ventilation systems, but I’m not sure what would work best. I’m dealing with airborne contaminants, a lack of humidity, fumes, and overly stale air. I think that any of these products would greatly improve my comfort and health, while also cutting my energy costs. I just keep thinking spring’s going to be here soon. It’s the middle of May, and the weather should be warming up. I’m hoping to open the windows and solve the problem. Instead, the cold continues and I’ve got no option but to keep the furnace running. With the high cost of weekly energy costs, I’m reluctant to spend even more money on indoor comfort.
