I had to have an emergency HVAC repair

There is nothing worse than me completely unprepared for an emergency. I have some friends of mine that I know personally that seem to prepare for everything. A blizzard coming? They have stocked back supplies. A food shortage is coming? They have stocked back food. I know for a fact they have several cans of food stocked away. Get lost in the middle of nowhere? They happen to have maps conveniently for that location. Invasion by aliens? They somehow have some sort of mega superweapon that can destroy the alien mothership. Okay, but on a serious note they seem to be prepared for everything is my point. Me on the other hand, I am never prepared for anything. Especially emergencies. This was the case when my heating system died right in the middle of winter. This was no small issue because the temperature outside already dropped into the negatives and without a heating system I was going to freeze. I had to call the emergency HVAC services so a heating and cooling technician could come out and repair my heater. The heating and AC technician informed me that the heater had died as a result of not having any upgrades or tune-ups. Then I remembered that I forgot to have the upgrades scheduled for that year. All I could do was facepalm as I realized because of my forgetful memory that I was in this situation to begin with. I will try to hopefully be more prepared next year. Thankfully I have really awesome friends that allowed me to stay with them during the duration that my heating system was being repaired. Once my heating system had been successfully repaired by the HVAC technician I was able to return home the following day and continue to enjoy the warm heat.
