This is important folks, so listen up before you switch off and go to bed. You know that rattling sound that’s been driving you up the wall lately. It could be your furnace or any other old pipe somewhere around your home that’s been cracking up lately. How long do you really expect it’s going to last? If you keep on playing the idle game, always fretting over money that you’ll need to spend, you’ll be tossing and turning for this much longer before you’re knee deep in water dirtier than gray, or something worse.
You know, living in an old house for this long, something’s bound to give. The longer you put these things off, the worse the damage will be. Not in the long run, it could be pretty soon when the winter rains and storms arrive. Old pipes that may have weathered many a storm are no longer what it was cracked up to be. The same goes for the furnace, perhaps more critically so. So, without any further delay, make a note somewhere, place it just so on your nightstand, this so you don’t forget, turn over and roll over and have a good night’s rest.
It may happen now that your conscience has been salved. Unless, of course, the long overdue inevitable happens. Make a note that it’s just possible that your old house might need a furnace installation or complete plumbing overhaul one of these fine days. Before the floodgates well and truly open, allow a qualified and accredited plumbing technician to do a full inspection of your old house. Who knows, a little bit of luck may be on your side and nothing more than a solid maintenance contract will be required.
