I still remember this crazy thing about six weeks ago where something incredible happened. It was late in the night as well as I was asleep in our bed, as well as a burglar had broke into our house. It was a cold night, as well as I had our heating method set pretty high since the heating system was taking longer than respected to heat our home. Apparently, the burglar was having trouble breathing in the front room of our house. By the time he got towards the back of the home where our family room is, he was audibly coughing – that’s when I woke up, as well as was understandably terrified! This is where things got pretty wild, though. The burglar, knowing how disappointing this situation looked, stood on the outside of our family room door as well as loudly explained that there could be a carbon monoxide leak in our house. He said that he had no intention of hurting me or anyone else, as well as volunteered to call 911 for me if it meant getting me to leave the house. By the time I was up as well as out of bed, the guy was gone as well as out of our home – however the fumes were honestly present! I got out of the home as well as stayed with a acquaintance nearby. I had a heating as well as A/C maintenance specialist at our home the next day, as well as they confirmed that there was a crack in the heating system in our basement. The heating system had to be completely upgraded. Before leaving for the day, the HVAC maintenance tech asked me how I was able to tell that there was a carbon monoxide leak when I was supposedly asleep – I simply said that a great samaritan tipped me off.
