Need to check our heater

Have you ever been bitterly, so cold that no matter what you did you were uncomfortable? My family experienced that last winter when my furnace stopped working. In a temperate climate, as hot as it gets during certain parts of the year it gets just as cold in others. I could not believe the speed in which my house got frosty that night. My family was wrapped up together in blankets waiting for the HVAC technician to come out to check the furnace It seemed like an eternity before he arrived even though he was there relatively quickly. It was game night and my children, wife, and I were playing poker when the room began to get increasingly cold. It did not take long for us all to feel the chill as it was snowing outside and temperatures were dropping. I went to check the thermostat to find that it was not at the temperature we had set on the heater. I wasn’t sure what to do at that point so I dialed up our HVAC technician. I felt guilty about having someone come out in the bad weather, but my family and I needed relief from the cold. The HVAC technician showed up and immediately discovered the issue. He went to the laundry room and noticed the main power switch to the furnace had been bumped accidentally and flipped the switch on and at once, we heard it kick on and thanked the technician for taking the time to come out and make our home warm again so we could continue our card playing!
