Next, you should check the power is enabled for your furnace or air handler. Make sure the switch close to the indoor equipment is in the “on” position.
In addition to that, you should make sure all furnace cabinet or air handler doors/panels are sturdily secured.
An unsecured panel may trigger the safety switch, which disconnects power to the unit.
Infrequently, a clear screen may mean you should get a new thermostat.
Ensure that your thermostat is set to “cool” or “heat,” not “off.”

Equipment still won’t run? Make sure circuit breakers haven’t turned off and that your HVAC unit isn’t experiencing error codes.
First, check your thermostat is switched to “cool” or “heat.”
Then, ensure it’s calling for the right system to start. This is usually shown by “cool on,” “heat on” or a picture.
