Our furnace was working overtime and making our home way too warm.
I came home from work one cool Wintertide evening and was excited to spend some family time near our old wood furnace playing some card games, but when I got home, the home was much more than just warm, it was downright hot! I asked our husband what he had the temperature control set to and he said he had only set it at 68 degrees, but there was no way that the home was only at 68 degrees! I checked the temperature control and yes, it was indeed set at 68 degrees, but the actual temperature of the home was 83! I was horrified that it was so hot, and turned the set temperature way down, hoping it would cool the home to a normal temperature.
Later that evening, the home did cool down, but it was still pretty warm. The two of us all went to bed in shorts and a t-shirt because it was still quite warm. I woke up in the middle of the evening cold cold, and got up to check the temperature control again. Apparently, the furnace decided to stop working altogether that evening. When morning came I called the heating and cooling company and tied up a time for an Heating and Air Conditioning worker to come take a look at our old wood furnace. After the Heating and Air Conditioning worker did his inspection on the furnace, he told myself and others there was a lot of work to be done in order to get our furnace back into working condition. Luckily, both of us had been saving for years to get a current furnace and were ready to get it installed. The two of us got a current oil furnace in our home and never had any heating or cooling problems since.
