Another question about my cursed house...now 3 years old, which we are trying to sell. Things like to break an hour or two before showings, which is what happened today.
The AC unit, which in the first year we had LOTS of problems with (approx. 8 service calls), has been running fine for a while now. Today is was getting warm in the house, so we turned on the AC (which we have been doing off and on for the past month or so). It got cool for awhile, and then I noticed it still seemed warm in the house. Sure enough, it had stopped running.
So my husband went to the thermostat (White-Rodgers Type No. 1F80-261) and tried to turn on the furnace, and that is not working either. It still clicks when you press the buttons or move the switch from heat/off/cool, but nothing happens.
I called a heating/AC place for service (no appointments available today) but the girl on the phone said it sounds like the thermostat. Before I call for a weekend appt. and get charged "premium rate" since it is the holiday, I would love to just go pick up a new thermostat and switch it out, but know better than to try something before checking with the pros here!
Does it sound like a bad thermostat, or something more? Thanks for any thoughts you all may have on this!
