In June the pvc pipe from the airconditioning unit clogged. I watched the repair man last year and I got the clog removed and that part worked fine including the air conditioner for the summer. At that time I dried some water from on top of the actual furnace as well and I ran a big fan for about 7 days to dry the basement and hopefully dry any dampness within the furnace. (This was what the repair man last year suggested.) All was fine June to now. Then in Sept. I turned the whole unit off to save a little on both air and heat. Now, I am trying to turn on the heat. The thermostat works fine and when I put on the air, that works. The heat isn't responding. I've changed the filter and reset that. The fuse panel has everything on. I've set the thermostat 5 degrees higher than the house temp... no heat. I'm a girl and hate this 'handyman' stuff but I really need to save the repair bill. The furnace is Carrier. I'm thinking pilot light... what do you think?
