Some times, it IS the thermostat

Just a gentle note to the sarcastic types who proclaim the problem with the furnace has to be the thermostat.
Talked to a friend of mine, today, right after church. Their house was recently too hot. They replaced the thermostat, and now it's fine.

Not necessarily. I had an old Honeywell mechanical stat that failed and just kept the furnace on regardless od setting.
