How doI I change the battery in my thermostat? Tess

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

There are no lights or numbers in thermostat window.

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

I had thought it would just be removing the thermostat cover...

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

I don't know enough the situation to know what else is needed.
