Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your

issue. First I’ll need some more info so I have a more complete picture of your situation.

There's no display on your room thermostat?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Only the actual temperature
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 6 months ago

If you have a boiler the thermostat may need batteries or maybe need to be replaced. Is the boiler working now? do you have heat?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
The boiler is working. We have no heat. It's not the batteries
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 6 months ago

If you have no thermostat display it's either batteries or a bad thermostat. Tell your tech to jump out the thermostat. Connect red & white (R & W) wires together. Does heat respond?
