Darn how you turn up the heat??


I'm such a newbie! I bought my first condo in July and now need to set up the heat. I don't know how too!!

I have central air and heat. I have a goodman unit and a honeywell control. I was able to set the honeywell heat program ..but the heat is not kicking in! I do have a question: Do I need to keep the "FAN" option on or on Auto??

What should i do??

On my White-Rogers programmable thermostat the fan is set to AUTO and the system switch is set to HEAT.
And then of course the temperature is set to the level that you want.
If you Google the make and model of your thermostat you should be able to find the user guide for your thermostat.

Fan should be set to AUTO, unless you like to have the fan running 24/7 regardless of the AC/HEAT.

After you set your HEAT temperature, wait a few moments. Then try cycling through the MODE settings. As you cycle through them, they should go through HEAT, COOL, AUTO. Easier to leave it on AUTO as well, so long as your temps are set apart correctly.

Other than that?????
