That was a relief, that’s for sure
I thought that the furnace was torn up, but it turned out that it was the thermostat. When the house started to get definitely cold last week, I could only think that there was something wrong with our high efficiency heating system. My friend and I had the heating system installed last year, but my friend and I have not had to run it very much until the past month or so. Winter season came late for us this year, to say the least. It didn’t certainly get all that cold here where my friend and I live until just the last couple of weeks or so. Then rapidly, the temperature started cooling down outside and my friend and I had to turn the thermostat up. Much to our dismay, when my friend and I turned the thermostat up, the heating system did not seem to do what my friend and I wanted it to do. The heating fan ran and ran, but there was not any hot air coming out of the heating vents at all. I couldn’t understand what was going on, and it seemed like the furnace was running constantly. Even so, the temperature in the house never got warmer. I called our local heating and cooling supplier to make a heating repair appointment, and I thought that I was going to have to pay a fortune for a heating repair. It turned out that there wasn’t anything wrong with the furnace at all. That was a relief, that’s for sure. It was nice to know that my friend and I had not ended up with a dud heater! The issue was the fact that the thermostat was broken, not the heater. It was a straight-forward repair and my friend and I didn’t have to pay very much at all for the heating, ventilation, and A/C appointment.
