Better yet, grab a fluke meter to see if 220 is there,


furnaces run on 120 volts not 220 volt grin
most homeowwners do not own a meter for testing voltage wink or know how to use it

What happens if the batteries are proven to be good? secondly, a thermostat is wired to 24 volts DC and the batteries are solely for the benefit of maintaining your preset programs. You know what they call people like your self? Fool or emergency room patients.
