Customer Question
My furnace came on...

My furnace came on at 6:00 am when it was suppose to still be set at 62. Nothing I did could get it to shut off

Contractor's Assistant: Did you check the furnace's filters?

Just changed it a week ago

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I did change it! Also about 2 weeks ago got a reading saying my sensors were not reading then after a time it corrected itself

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Furnace finally just shut down. I do not trust thermostat as this is second incidence of it acting up

Sounds like have a bad thermostat. You can confirm this by removing the wire connected to the R terminal on the thermostat when it's running wild. If it shuts down replace the thermostat

My carrier infinity thermostat is blank, larger HVAC
larger HVAC problem. Here is why. I called service with this SAME problem 3 weeks ago. I wasn't home. My wife was. The technician told my wife that nothing was wrong. He just had to "reset" the unit. He also said the unit turns itself off when someone tries to drive the AC when it is cold outside. This was off AFTER I returned from a 2-1/2 week vacation. And it is POSSIBLE that the AC was on when it got cold while I was away But i don't think that should make a difference But, the technician reset the AC and the unit worked for a week It just failed again. … read more
