Well, I guess the noise won’t be so funny if it ends up costing me a lot of money to fix it, but for now it’s kind of funny.
It’s making a rumbling and screeching sound every time it turns on and it reminds me of the old Christmas Story movie with the father always cursing the broken down unit. I think I have watched that movie about 15 times now and it still makes me giggle. Maybe I will end up yelling and screaming at my unit if it breaks down or starts to smoke like the one in the movie. If I recall, he had an old oil or gas heater that kept breaking down during the Christmas holidays and the father would be covered in black soot. The little boy would laugh at his father behind his back and the laughter was contagious. Maybe the parents should have invested in a wood burning furnace instead. But then again he probably would end up with other problems while he was chopping wood. Maybe a tree would fall on the house or on the car. I think I should replace my old oil heater with a new high quality heating and air conditioning unit so I don’t have to constantly worry about whether or not my house will be warm in the winter. I guess another option is to move to a place where the weather is more moderate and not even worry about having heat or AC in my house. There are many options for climate control, I just need to decide which is best.
