Air conditioning stays on when I want heat

The seasons changed rather fast this year.

It went from summer to winter in one day.

The only problem is that when I changed the thermostat from air conditioning to heat, it didn’t change. The air conditioning stayed on. Cold air continued to pour out of the vents and I could hear the compressor kicking on just the same as before. It was clearly time to call out the professionals but I didn’t know who to call. Should I call the heater or the air conditioner repairman? Once I looked it up, I discovered they are one and the same and go under the title HVAC repair. An HVAC technician was able to come out the next day and explained the situation. It seems that there is an internal switch inside of my heating and air conditioning system that tells the system to turn on the heat or the air conditioner. This switch was fried in my system. In short, my system was stuck thinking I wanted the air condition on still. The technician would have to order a new switch. In the meantime, I had to make do with space heater since my furnace still would not work. Thankfully, it was not super cold yet so this was workable for the time being. The new part came in within a couple of days too so the technician came back and got my central heating working well again. It is funny how little thought I give to the workings of my heating and air conditioning until something goes wrong. And yet, I depend on it every single day.
