Is the thermostat my "indoor unit" or is there another place to look?
Expert:  Gaztech replied 7 months ago.
T-stat is a t-stat, what blows air in your house is the indoor unit...Did you check your batteries in your t-stat
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
hello?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
It has always worked and there are no batteries in the t-stat
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I see a place for batteries but there are no batteries in there.
Expert:  Gaztech replied 7 months ago.
Put new batteries please
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Ok - now the display is on. But there is no air conditioning coming out of the vents.
Expert:  Gaztech replied 7 months ago.
Now you know t-stat works but before you put batteries in, it was the furnace that was powering t-stat so that means you have a problem with the indoor unit.
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
ok - now what?
Expert:  Gaztech replied 7 months ago.
I need to know what your indoor unit is, find it and get the make and model number..

Hi, I'm Tim and I'm an HVAC expert here to assist you with your questions. Please provide all information I request as it makes it more difficult to troubleshoot something when I'm not there onsite. Essentially, you become my eyes and ears. Thanks for the opportunity to help. At the end of our dialog, you will have a chance to rate my service, but please wait until we are finished and you're satisfied you have all the information you need. Please be patient as many times we work with several customers at once.The fact that thermostat display is blank means your furnace (or air handler) is not supplying power to stat. Check to see if blower door switch is on tight? Furnace switch ON?
Expert:  Tim H. replied 7 months ago.
Did you get a chance to check these things?
