Customer Question
I can’t figure out...

I can’t figure out if my thermostat has batteries. Can you help?

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

Thermostat is dead, so it might just be that

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

If all it requires is replacing the batteries then yes

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

It is a Honeywell chronotherm IV plus model

Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

Yes your thermostat has batteries but dead batteries shouldn't make the screen go dark. This is usually an indication of a problem with the furnace.
