Did it every work correctly?

Did you install the thermostat yourself?

Did you buy a conbination heating and cooling thermostat and hook up the furnace control leads to the cooling terminals (turns on when the termperature goes up)?

yes, no, and there is the cooling option, but no ac here, and i did not hook it up

PiPiFirecracker 02-20-2013 06:55 PM

is there some way i can check to see? or a way to test it? it is set to heat right now...

sorry i don't know if it ever worked correctly, were just renting and the landlord isn't really smartthere fore thinks it works even when i explain its broken.... but hes nice so i don't wanna push him to repair it, i'd rather deal with it myself... it would be faster I'm sure

So if you burn the place down by doing work, as a renter, you want to be responsible?

It's his responsibility as a land lord! Have him call a qualified tech and make repairs that's why you pay rent?
