Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Staying Warm Shouldn’t Be A Chore!

Staying Warm Shouldn’t Be A Chore!

Happy November! Halloween is over, parents have sneakily collected their candy taxes and the weather is cooling down. While you may be planning trips to escape the cold this year, you still need to make sure your heater is in good, working order! Most heating systems, such as a hot water heater or a furnace, should last around 20 years, give or take a few. However, that only happens if they are repaired as needed and maintained regularly.

If you are in an area where the temperatures drop below zero, you know how important it is to stay warm! You can gather all of your blankets, portable heaters and “hot hands” packs but you will still need a working heating system in case those other items just don’t cut it. I have two daughters, and their safety is my top priority. Their health ties in to that, and that includes keeping them warm and making sure their body temperatures stay regulated.



We really enjoy movie marathons during the holidays, so staying cozy and comfortable is a must. If your family is the same way, make sure you know what is going on with your heating system. Do you have it checked regularly to see if it needs any repairs or a quick tune-up? The smallest problem with a furnace can turn into the most expensive problem you run across all year if you do not get it fixed! An annual furnace inspection will save your system, it will save you money and it will also save you energy! A furnace that is not at it’s full working potential will need to use more energy in order to work efficiently. Think of your furnace like a car; if you ignore it, a lot more could go wrong at the most inconvenient of times.

When was the last time you had your furnace or heating system checked? The coldest part of the year is quickly approaching. Call your local HVAC Company today and schedule a home visit! You never know, this visit can save you lots of money and keep you healthy and safe! We want everyone’s health to last as long as his or her furnaces – here’s to another 20 years!

  1. We've been under zero last night... I went to the grocers early in the morning and almost froze to death :) Allyson looks comfy in that wonderfully set room! I do love me cosy blankets! I have a fury one in the sand colour that I use when watching series on my computer :)

    1. I love furry blankets! I have a blanket that I call "bob". It's mine and nobody is allowed to touch it. Even the dogs know to stay off lol.

  2. We have forced hot air heat, so we have our burner checked yearly - just to make sure its working. Ours is pretty old.

  3. I'm really hoping it doesn't get too cold around here. We had some wood for the fireplace shipped but we'll still need the heater going during the day.

  4. I have to admit I love snuggling under a blanket with a warm cup of tea and watching a movie - it does warm me up. x

  5. This is a great idea. I am all about saving money anyway that I can. We have our heating and cooling system checked every year. Catherine S

  6. This is a good reminder. Living in Southern California, we hardly ever put the heat on but we do wrap ourselves in blankets and drink a lot of tea!

  7. Thankfully I got free heat with my apartment so I can crank it up. If it breaks I'll go and b***h at the super.

    1. Well, I suppose that is a perk of apartment living! I'd have the heat cranked up too :)

  8. We love cuddling and watching movies to. We just got a bag of movies at my mom's cousin's apartment. I think we'll be good for awhile.

  11. I make sure everything is in good working order because having a cold house in the winter is no fun.

  13. It is always fun to cuddle and have a movie marathon. I love watching Netflix and binge watching my favorite shows.

  14. I agree, staying warm shouldn't be a chore. We love to snuggle and watch movies during the cold months.

  15. We just had our furnace checked a few weeks ago. Thankfully because we've been switching the heat on and off regularly because the weather has been so crazy here! We love cuddling up with a good movie on a cool night- Jeanine

  16. The old place we lived in was Old..literally. Over 100 years old and a lot of the furnace were more than 30 years old and cost us a lot of money to heat up the house in the winter. So glad we moved to a newer home with much better furnace.

  17. We've had the opposite here lately. I've been having to keep the ceiling fan on at night due to the high temperatures.

  18. I just love the winter putting me under couple of thick blankets & having some spicy soups or coffee to enjoy every moment of the weather. And I love watching some romance filled movies with my husband during these awesome nights.

  19. Since we are in the south, our weather has been wonky. We had a day in the 40's and then we had a day in the 70's! So weird!

  20. We used to have ours checked once a year. It really was worth it to do so.
