Living on a remote island has always been very appealing to me. I was looking for a change of pace and these wonderful plots of floating land provided just that. I found out that this could be a reality for me, after I moved to the northern region of the country. This area had a chain of small islands about five to ten miles off the coast. I found the perfect home and island for me after six months of intensive searching. Because being secluded was the major appeal of this home, I had several inspections completed on the home in order to prevent needing emergency repairs during the cold winters. One of the services that I paid close attention to was provided by our HVAC company. It was important for me to know that the gas furnace was in proper working order or if there were any parts that needed to be replace or repaired to ensure that the heating system would run efficiently during the upcoming winter months. Also, it was imperative that I eliminated any possibility of a house fire due to the faulty gas furnace. The HVAC service technician inspected the air filter in the furnace, it was filled with dust and debris and had to be changed immediately before the heating system could be used. I made a mental note that this was something that I could do regularly to keep my energy cost low. The heating specialist continued with a very thorough inspection of my HVAC system. Now that the gas furnace had been serviced, I felt very comfortable that my secluded life was off to a good warm start.
