Evidently, the oil furnace shut off in the middle of the night when I heard it turn off, however it didn’t actually turn back on
Our oil furnace shut off & won’t turn back on. I realize that it is August… Most people don’t need their oil furnace in August, however where we live, it gets rather cold at night even in August. It gets down to the forties here in the night hours & the lake household gets pretty chilly. We use our oil furnace only at night starting in August. It sounds entirely ridiculous to most people when I tell them that we use our oil furnace in the summer season, but I don’t sleep well in the cold weather. I really appreciate our home being at least seventy degrees, but I can sleep if it is at least sixty-eight degrees. We usually set our temperature control device to sixty-eight degrees while in the summer time so that the oil furnace kicks on at night when it gets below sixty-eight degrees. Well, I woke up in the midst of the night last night, & the lake household felt quite chilly. I could hear the oil furnace working, however then, it turned off. I thought that it was strange that the oil furnace turned off even though it felt entirely cold. I went back to sleep however I was freezing and I figured it was just me. I am constantly cold anyway. My hubby & I woke up the following day to a forty degree household. It was so cold I didn’t want to get out of bed. Evidently, the oil furnace shut off in the middle of the night when I heard it turn off, however it didn’t actually turn back on. My hubby tried to manually turn it back on, even though she couldn’t get it to turn on… Happily, it isn’t winter, however we still need to get our oil furnace repaired very soon.
