Heat and air has always been something I rely heavily on but rarely think about until it’s too late.
My HVAC system has always heated and cooled my house to the perfect temperature whenever I adjust the thermostat settings, so when I noticed my house feeling cool, I was confused.
The temperature outside was below 50 degrees, so I set my thermostat to 70 degrees. 70 degrees wasn’t too warm, but it was warm enough to keep me comfortable without running my furnace inefficiently. I could feel that the temperature wasn’t 70 degrees after a few hours, so I went to the thermostat to double check. As I expected, the thermostat said that even though it was set to 70 degrees, it was actually 66 degrees inside. This was way too cold for my liking, so I turned off my thermostat and tried to reset it. I even checked the breaker to make sure that everything was still connected and running. The circuit didn’t trip, so I was hoping that resetting my thermostat would solve the issue. I left the thermostat off for 20 minutes, and then I turned it back on. I reset the thermostat and waited for the furnace to kick on. I waited patiently and it felt like it was taking forever. After a few minutes, the furnace finally started running and warm air began pouring out of the vents. In less than an hour, my house was finally heated to 70 degrees. All it took was me resetting the thermostat.
