There is no need to remind anyone who has spent a winter in Chicagoland that it will be cold. Even if the thermometer does not drop to the record low of −27 °F experienced in 1985, it will still be a long, cold and windy winter and you will definitely see snow (probably lots of it).
Baby It’s Cold Outside
But, why should you care? It isn’t rocket science to dress up in warm winter clothing when venturing outside and experience has taught you how to beat the chill factor when using your automobile. About the only thing that could upset you when out of your home or indoor workplace is if you should get stranded by thick snow going from “A” to “B”. Hopefully you will get out of that one and make to your heated home or place of work.
Hopefully, All Is Snug And Warm Inside
At work, the “bosses” have a responsibility to keep you warm throughout the winter and, should they fail in this, you have a right to go home. At your home, the responsibility falls more squarely on your shoulders to make all the arrangements to guarantee your warmth and comfort. For those whose home is an apartment within a block of apartment units, your responsibility may only be to set your individual thermostat and pay the heating fees to the building management. But, whatever the arrangement and to whom or however it is paid for, someone has to generate the heat that can then be used to warm up individual rooms or spaces.
Where Does The Heat Come From?
Heat is a form of energy. If we ignore both the natural heat under the ground and the heat of atomic energy, heat is generated by burning something. Even much of our electrical energy is produced from combustion at the power plants. Electricity can be used for space heating and was often the energy source of choice in cities in the past but, it is now thought to be too expensive to use for warming up the air.
For most home or business premises, the heat source these days is usually located within the building in the form of some sort of Chicago Furnace Installation. Maybe still an old one that burns solid fuel or, a less old one burning liquid fuel oil but, more than likely, a modern furnace fuelled by natural gas or one of the liquefied petroleum gases (eg propane). Whatever the type, it will require regular maintenance and, at some time, it will wear out and that is when you will need to call in a contractor to provide a new Chicago Furnace Installation.
