My thermostat is not working. I have set it at 70 but it stays at 61 though the radiator are hot.

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

I have no idea. I am no technician

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

NO
