A heater in my new climate

Me and my fiance moved back east a few months ago. I haven’t been able to get used to the colder temperatures. We were in the west before, where the weather was always very decent. Even during the winter months, we still had temperatures around 65 – 75 degrees. I liked living there, and I spent the first 26 years of my life enjoying the sunshine, humidity, and swamplands. When my fiance was sent to a navy base on the east coast, I had no choice but go along. We have been together for 3 years, and I know he is the one for me! Our son is going to be born in a few months, and our family has to be together. The move was very hard, because the drive was long. We have a big dog, so we couldn’t fly across the country. The days have been rainy and chilly, and the nights are even worse. My fiance works at night, and I have no one to cuddle up with except the dog. The dog keeps me warm, but the furnace certainly does not. I have been using the furnace all week, but it’s still cold in our place. I think the furnace needs to be repaired or replaced with a central heating system, but my fiance insists that it’s my pregnancy hormones. The outdoor weather is only going to get colder, so I hope the furnace really doesn’t have any issues. I’m going to be very unhappy, if the furnace breaks down when I’m home alone. That is one of my worst concerns!
