Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

It started this morning.

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

Not really.

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

All i know is it is getting cold in house. I thought maybe thermostat would work but nothing happened.

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

I really have no clue maybe the thermostate i did try a few things on it.
