I came home from...

I came home from a 3 day trip to find that my heat is not working. I believe the problem to be the thermostat partly because it is at least 12 years old. It is a HUNTER 44100 programmable heat/cool thermostat

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

Yes. Set to heat. Room temp was 60 and the thermostat was set to 67 filter is new. System was working fine when I left Saturday morning

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

Yes. In fact I tried to test the output of the stat and regardless of any thermostat settings, It always shows continuity between the green and yellow terminals
