Our gas furnace was toiling overtime

Our gas furnace was toiling overtime & making our house way too warm. I came home from work 1 cool Wintertide evening & was gleeful to spend some family time near our old wood gas furnace playing some card games, but when I got home, the house was much more than just warm, it was downright hot! I asked our partner what she had the control device set to & she said she had only set it at 71 degrees, but there was no way that the house was only at 71 degrees! I took care of the control device & yeah, it was indeed set at 71 degrees, but the actual temperature of the house was 83! I was horrified that it was so hot, & turned the set temperature way down, hoping it would cool the house to a normal temperature. Later that evening, the house did cool down, but it was still pretty warm. We all went to bed in shorts & a t-shirt because it was still quite warm. I woke up in the middle of the night freezing cold, & got up to check the control device again. Apparently, the gas furnace decided to stop toiling altogether that night. When day came I called the heating & cooling corporation & tied up a time for an Heating & A/C professional to come take a look at our old wood gas furnace. After the Heating & A/C professional did his inspection on the gas furnace, he told me there was a lot of work to be done in order to get our gas furnace back into toiling condition. Luckily, we had been saving for years to get a up-to-date gas furnace & were ready to get it installed. We got a up-to-date oil gas furnace in our house & never had any heating or cooling troubles since.
