I’m a pretty old-fashioned person and I love to chop wood like the old days to make a fire in my household’s fireplace.
However, I am not always feeling like I want to have the energy to make a homemade fire! The radiator unit in our apartment is composed of various radiators – a single one that sits on the first floor in our living room, plus the other on the second floor in the hallway between our bed room plus lavatory, however since there’s various and assorted radiators in the house, the boiler in the basement tends to work double-time to keep both systems running, however it doesn’t always work without a problem here or there.
Recently, I had to pay some pretty big cash to get our boiler repaired, and the piping leading to the radiators themselves! That’s the actual thing – not a single person in the world ever tells you that using a radiator means you have to keep antifreeze in the pipes at all! I left home at this time for a few days or so for a work-related trip out of town, plus it totally slipped my mind to put the chemicals into the pipes, but when I came home a few days later, I had a sizable mess to clean up in the house! Water damage to a house is really no joke! Well, I think it’s a fantastic thing that I don’t mind cutting wood to keep a fire going in our fireplace! After the overpriced repair bills for the radiators as well as the boiler, then adding the cleanup costs from the water damage, I’ll be sticking to a fireplace as our heat source for a long time! I will not be changing my mind on that anytime soon!
