Luckily, every one of us had been saving for years to get a modern gas furnace & were ready to get it installed
Our gas furnace was working overtime & making our home way too warm. I came condo from toil a single cool Winter time evening & was excited to spend some family time near our aged wood gas furnace playing some card games, but when I got home, the home was much more than just warm, it was downright hot! I asked my spouse what she had the thermostat set to & she said she had only set it at 69 degrees, but there was no way that the home was only at 69 degrees! I checked the thermostat & yeah, it was indeed set at 69 degrees, but the actual temperature of the home was 83! I was horrified that it was so hot, & 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 people I was with and I all went to bed in shorts & a t-shirt because it was still quite warm. I woke up in the middle of the night frosty cold, & got up to check the thermostat again. Apparently, the gas furnace decided to stop working altogether that night. When afternoon came I called the heating & cooling supplier & busy a time for an HVAC worker to come take a look at our aged wood gas furnace. After the HVAC worker did his inspection on the gas furnace, he told myself and others there was a lot of toil to be done in order to get our gas furnace back into working condition. Luckily, every one of us had been saving for years to get a modern gas furnace & were ready to get it installed. The people I was with and I got a modern oil gas furnace in our home & never had any heating or cooling problems since.
