Is it advisable to disconnect the faulty one and replace it with one of the others? will there be any damage/danger to the system/pumps etc?/

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

Checked the thermostat settings . what filters ?

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

Yes , if it will not impact the heating pumps

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

I don't think so

HI I AM DAN I CAN HELP YOU WITH THIS. DOING THAT WILL NOT AFFECT THE PUMPS BUT FOR SAFETY I WOULD RECOMMEND TURNING THE POWER OFF TO THE SYSTEM BEFORE SWAPPING THE THERMOSTAT AND THEN TURN BACK ON.
