The furnace that has a mind of its own

I can’t stand being in a scary place, watching a scary movie, or being in a situation with potentially scary outcomes.

When I went to work one morning and found out that a coworker was playing pranks on people, I made up a sickness just to go home for the day! That’s really how bad my fear is.

So, you can only imagine how afraid I was when my furnace started acting as if it were possessed last winter. It began innocently enough: I was at home, sleeping peacefully in my bed, when I would notice that it was much colder in the house than usual. I would get up from my bed, and check out the thermostat on the wall to see where it was gauged. To my surprise, it would show a very warm temperature – usually eighty degrees, and no indication of someone tampering with it was present. I had no idea what could be the cause! Rather than play a guessing game as a ghost haunts my home and my furnace, I decided to reach out to one of those heating, ventilation and air conditioning repair companies in town regarding the matter. They sent an HVAC repair technician over to my home, and he found that the furnace had sensors that were burned out and causing false readings for how warm or cool it was indoors. I was thankful to find out that the house wasn’t haunted, but then I realized I’d have to pay for the repairs to my HVAC system. One nightmare for another I suppose!
