Our furnace shut off and won’t turn back on.
I know that it is August. Most people don’t need their furnace in August, but where we live, it gets pretty cold at night even in August. It gets down to the forties here at night, and the house gets pretty chilly, so we use our furnace only at night starting in August. It sounds crazy to most people when I tell them that we use our furnace in the summer, but I don’t sleep well in the cold. I really prefer our house to be at least seventy-five degrees, but I can sleep if it is at least sixty-eight degrees. We usually set our thermostat to sixty-eight degrees during the summer so that the furnace kicks on at night when it gets below sixty-eight degrees. Well, I woke up in the middle of the night last night, and the house felt quite chilly. I could hear the furnace running, but then, it turned off. I thought that it was weird that the furnace turned off even though it felt cold. I went back to sleep even though I was freezing because I figured it was just me. I am almost always cold anyway. My husband and I woke up the next morning to a forty degree house. It was so cold I didn’t want to get out of bed. Apparently, the furnace turned off in the middle of the night when I heard it turn off, but it didn’t turn back on. My husband tried to manually turn it back on, but he couldn’t get it to turn on. Thankfully, it isn’t winter, but we still need to get our furnace fixed soon.
