I knew there was a problem with the boiler, but every so often, I would hear a small boom coming from the boiler.
I called the Heating as well as A/C supplier who commanded I turn the boiler off until the Heating as well as A/C serviceman got there.
They were sending him to the apartment as soon as possible. She made the situation sound so dire, that I turned the boiler off, as well as put my overcoat on when it began to get cold. An hour later, the Heating as well as A/C serviceman was at the door. She headed directly to the boiler room as well as started working on the boiler. I heard a loud boom come from the boiler, that reverberated through the HVAC duct. I opened the basement door, hoping I wasn’t going to see any flames. The Heating as well as A/C serviceman appeared to be temporarily stunned, but she said she was okay. Apparently there was a gas pocket. When she touched a wire, the gas pocket lit, which caused the boom. She said she wasn’t going to get the boiler repaired any time soon, as well as asked if I had anywhere to go for the evening? I could entirely call my mom, best friend, or even my fiance, although I didn’t want to leave the house. She said it was supposed to get genuinely cold that evening, as well as if there were more gas pockets, even a space heater could cause a spark. She scared me enough that I called my Dad as well as asked if I could spend the evening there. I told her I would explain why when I got there because I didn’t want her worrying about the boiler if I didn’t arrive immediately.
