Hello,welcome to Just Answer. Tell me a lot about your technical skills, and brand and model number of the HVAC unit or furnace so that I can coach you most effectively. Meantime turn the thermostat OFF, let the unit sit for 5 minutes, then turn it back on and tell me what happens. We can go from there.
