How do I set the time on my thermostat?

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, do you think this is a larger HVAC problem, or something specific to the thermostat?

Not really sure.

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

No. I think I should at least be sure I'm working the thermostat correctly before calling the landlord.

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

Well, we just can't get the heat to come on.
