My Stupid Furnace Keeps Coming On.

It's been in the 30s overnight here and in the high 40/low50s during the day.  We just had flurries. We are to get a couple of inches tomorrow or Sat.

 

I know all too well it's not surprising here in NE PA, but geez.  Monday we had terrible downpours, he**ish wind and sun.  Yep, all in one day.

 

I was kind of hoping we would get some decent sunny 60/70 degree weather to offset being housebound. Open windiows will be great.  Not nice weather to go out mosey around in the yard.

@CrazyKittyLvr2 So I guess you’re glad your furnace is coming on. You make it sound like a bad thing.

Furance hasnt been on in my house since mid March.  Use blankets, shawls, and even a hat if you are chilly.  In these uncertain times keeping the natural gas bill under 100 dollars is paramount.

It's something I say every year. Of course you are glad the furnace works, but April always gives you a taste of warm weather and then it snows. I too complain about the furnace coming on, it's what you do in spring in the northeast.

That sounds like a "smart" furnace, to me.  It's keeping you comfortable!  

although our days have warmed up, it's still chilly at night.  My furnace comes on, too.

Re: My Stupid Furnace Keeps Coming On.

lol    The furnace has no brain, so someone in the house has to decide where to set the thermostat.  This time of year I wanted my furnace to run once each morning to relieve the damp chill in my old house.

 

But I did have  friends who set their furnaces by the calendar rather than the outdoor temperature.

I'm grateful ours has been running - it has been 20 at night, and 35 during the day. We will reach the 50's by the weekend.

So does mine, and I am loving it.  I run really cold and bless mine.  I also have a heating pad under my feet right now since they seem unhappy.

Why??  Do people turn into pumpkins otherwise??  How people spend their money, ie so foolishly on heat...their business.
