Customer Question
My Nest thermostat says...

My Nest thermostat says no power and no HVAC connected. But it was all working yesterday

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

Not a thermostat problem except it is not getting power. It is running on backup battery.

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

If i can figure out if there is a breaker to the HVAC that is the problem

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

It is an all electric system - no gas

HI I AM DAN I CAN HELP YOU WITH THIS. THERE SHOULD BE A CIRCUIT BREAKER IN YOUR MAIN PANEL FOR THE HOUSE AND IT SHOULD BE LABELED FOR THE HEAT OR A/C, TRY RESETTING THAT AND THERE SHOULD BE ANOTHER BREAKER OR DISCONNECT ON THE AIR HANDLER OR NEAR IT. TRY RESETTING THAT TOO.
