My DIY furnace maintenance nightmare

I live in a warmer weather conditions, and I don’t have to use our furnace for much of the year! Last weekend, however, all of us experienced a frigid front, and it got into the low 40s.

Not wanting our family to be uncomfortable, I turned on the furnace before I went to bed, only to wake up in the morning to a frigid house.

Luckily I was off of labor that morning, so I was able to take matters into our own hands. I did what I always do when something is broken, and scoured YouTube for answers. I found a video where the speaker described a problem similar to mine, so I went to the hardware store, and obtained a replacement section for our furnace, but the defective section came out with ease, and the new furnace component fit right in its place. Unfortunately, however, when I went to turn our furnace back on, it was still blowing frigid air. Several YouTube videos and numerous trips to the hardware store later, I had unsuccessfully spent the whole morning trying to maintenance our furnace, however to no avail. The next morning, I contacted our local Heating & Air Conditioning provider to ask for help. They were able to send a worker out rapidly, and the Heating & Air Conditioning professional was able to rapidly diagnose our situation, and have our furnace working again in no time, most importantly, he told myself and others how important it is to have frequent inspections of our Heating & Air Conditioning system, in order to prevent it from failing again. Now, I can rest simple knowing that I won’t be stuck with a frigid house!
