Customer Question

Hi I'm having trouble with my thermostat. It is original with the house. The house is 17 yrs old. My thermostat is lowering its our temp. If I set it at 71 it changes to 68 within two hours. I'm hoping it's the battery. I have never changed it. How do I get the cover off without ripping this thing off my wall? Then where's the batteries
