Question Heater Q?

Hello all,

I'm not much of a handyman at all...so I need some guidance from you before calling the HVAC tech.

A couple weeks, I got my condensor of the central AC unit replaced. The AC's been working fine since then.

But there's a new problem that arose:

The Fan is blowing air alright (when i switch it on).
- but the heater just doesn't start. I've tried changing the thermostat setting - and i can see that the thermostat's attempting to get the heating started (coz the temperature displays starts blinking).

But the heater doesn't come on. The fan doesn't start and of-course the furnace isn't working at all. it was all working just fine until about 10 days ago.

What should i look for?

Thanks!

it hasn't worked since the a/c repair? Call them back, they probably inadvertantly did some thing to the the wiring.

Unless you have breaker that went off or a furnace switch got shut off, you really need to be handy enough to own and know how to use a multimeter tester (you can get cheap from $10 on up at big box stores), because without one of these you can't do too much in diagnosing, really.

I am with Daddyjohn, They may of bumped a wire off or somthing when you had the new A/C put in.. I'd call them on Monday to get that taken cared of before winter sets in.

Standing Pilot switched off!

Thanks for your feedback guys! After reading up on the Web, i realized that the Standing Pilot (Flame) had been turned off, during the A/C work - dunno for what reason.

I got that going again, with a BBQ lighter, and i'm now all set!

Thanks again!
