How I get through winter with a furnace that is struggling

I have always said that I would buy a new furnace and would invest in one soon.

However, since this old boiler I used was still working, although not perfectly, I seem to forget about the heating equipment as soon as winter relapses. Sometimes when it gets too cold I light the wood stove in the living room as it helps keep the house warmer than usual. However, it can be expensive since I also have to buy wood which is not sustainable. Last summer was super hard since the old boiler finally gave in and stopped working towards the end of winter. While it wasn’t too cold like the peak days, it was still not possible to get through without some form of heating.The boiler just went off after a loud bang in the basement. When the heating expert came to examine it the next day, he told us that the equipment had simply given up after struggling to work for years. Apparently it has exceeded its lifespan by over 5 years and it was even surprising that we had not experienced exorbitant energy bills. SInce I didn’t have the budget for a new heating unit or furnace this time, I had to invest in something quick but practical. My husband and I went to the local HVAC store and bought three portable heaters for each bedroom. The same heaters will have to work when everyone was in the living room if there was a need to supplement the wood stove in there. This was a big lesson for us not to wait until a mechanical gadget is completely dead to act.
