Customer Question
My thermostat is on...

My thermostat is on cool but hot air is blowing out.

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?

I checked the settings, put it on OFF overnight, checked the status lights and removed the filter. The status light is blinking green, the dhw was red and off. I turned it on. The filter is dirty but I don't have a clean one so I removed it to see if it would help for the time being. Then I turned it on COOL. Still warm air.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Not if it is involved.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Should the DHW be on or off?
