For nearly every misfortune we encounter, there is also what we’ll call the “if only…” moment.
You lock yourself out of the house, and you say to yourself “If only I’d checked my pockets before I walked out the door.”
You get stuck behind a slow driver on the way to work and think “Wow, I wish I’d left earlier.”
Or your furnace breaks down on a day when the temperature won’t top 20 degrees, and you realize, “I guess I should have had a heating repair company inspect my furnace when I had the chance.”
This is a point that we’ve made again and again, because we’ve seen far too many homeowners suffer through a brutally cold stretch of winter thanks to an issue that we might have caught during routine furnace service.
