I have an older Utica gas furnace. Being that the weather is starting to get a bit colder, I was wondering why the house was so cold when I came home from work. The thermostat in-house temp says 62 degrees and the thermostat is set at 68. The thermostat should have turned on the furnace. There is no clicking sound from the therm. when turning it all the way to the lowest or highest setting. I checked the furnace pilot light and it is on...also the water level is fine. I also checked the fusebox for open circuit breakers. Can anyone help me out here to figure out why the furnace will not turn on?

Turns out we had a painter here about a month ago. Some paint had dropped thru the top of the thermostat and had isolated the contacts. After cleaning, now working fine.

Thanks anyway.........
