The furnace wasn’t running, but it definitely should have been.
My wife and I decided to go to a holiday party at one of our friends’ houses. We left the kids with a babysitter for a couple of hours. The girl babysitting the kids is one of the girls from the neighborhood. She is 16 years old with a car and seems to be very responsible. We have left the kids with her in the past and there have never been any problems. Unfortunately, there were some issues when we went to the holiday party. The babysitter called because there was no heat in the house. She texted my wife a couple of times. Her phone was in the car unfortunately, so we didn’t get any of the messages. When the babysitter called my phone, I immediately answered. She told me that the kids were complaining that it was cold so she was going to adjust the thermostat and that is when she realized that it was only 60° in the house. The furnace wasn’t running, but it definitely should have been. I told my wife that we needed to contact an Evansville heating company to fix the problems with the furnace. I called the Evansville heating company while we were on the phone with the babysitter and the repair technician met us at the house about an hour later. We were just getting home when the Evansville heating company repair technician pulled into the driveway. The problem with the furnace turned out to be something simple and easy to fix, but there was no way that I could know that from the other side of the city.
