I can’t help however laugh about it.
I felt truly stupid last week, and let me preface by saying that we moved into a new house about 6 months ago, however things were going great; there were a few repairs needed however no much. Then, last week, the furnace completely stopped working, and it simply would not turn on at all; My fiance & I pulled a few space oil furnaces out of storage & after that I called up a gas furnace repair corporationâ€¦ Because of the sudden drop in temperature, the corporation could not come out for 2 whole mornings, but needless to say, by the time they arrived, we were both getting tired of living separate from heat. That is what makes this so funny. The worker simply took our temperature control off of the wall, updated batteries in the back of it, & the furnace kicked right on. I didn’t even think that our temperature control had batteries. I thought it was hooked up to the wiring in the wall enjoy in our old house. I ended up having to pay $70 just to have a gas furnace repairman come to my house & update the batteries in my temperature control. That is something we truly could have done ourselves, and well at least now we know. I can’t help however laugh about it. I am just grateful that the furnace is working again, we can put away our space heaters, & there was not something seriously wrong with the furnace. I guess it will take us a few years to learn all of the ins & outs of this house. I just hope we don’t pay for any other unnecessary repairs in the meantime.
