Ask A Question


I can answer questions on gas or electric furnaces, ac units and heat pumps. I don't work on boilers,chillers,or home appliances.

Experience in the area

I have been in the HVAC trade for over 35 years. For the past 15 years I have owned my own business. I am semi-retired so I can answer questions in a timely manner.


I attended trade school for 5 years on weekends and evenings. This was very hard to do, but well worth it!

Hi Ben, The control panel has a " boot" button on it, try resetting it. The dampers fail to the open position so you might have a bad damper motor. Do you have a volt meter to troubleshoot the motor?
