Answer: In case, you plan to troubleshoot the problem that your HVAC system is facing, you need to start by checking whether the system has power or not. You should be able to locate the service panel and ensure that the circuit breaker has not tripped. Here it needs to be noted that the air conditioner and the furnace have dedicated circuit breaker or fuse for each of them, so you could turn either them off at a time and switch it on after sometime. The next thing that you need to check is the thermostat. There are some thermostats which function on electricity while there are others which work with batteries. In case, the batteries have worn out you will have to replace them with new ones. Besides these there are a lot of other things that you could do.
