Question about Heating & Cooling
Your heating system is separate from your domestic hot water. This means that you probably have an electric or gas appliance dedicated to heat water for your home.
Your problem will be found with your furnace or fuel supply. Since it is not unusual to heat water with a different fuel (electric, gas, etc.) than you do to heat your home, one can work while the other does not. Your first check should be to determine which energy source is required for your home to be heated. Home Heating Oil, Natural Gas and Propane are very common fuels. Additionally, many of these systems require some sort of electric supply to provide power for controls, pumps, sensors, etc.
Check for blown fuses and tripped circuit breakers in the electrical panel. Restore any failed circuit found. Check fuel level gauges. Arrange for refueling if you are out of fuel. If heating with Home Heating Oil, the delivery driver will probably need to manually prime and start your furnace before it will work automatically again.
You may also have a defective thermostat, control or sensor. Additionally, the furnace may have detected an unsafe condition when last run, and shut down as a safety precaution. If any of these things have happened, you'll probably need to have a pro check it out and make the required repairs for you. You could start by contacting your fuel company to see if they offer service. Otherwise, check telephone listings for someone that does.
Hopefully, this helps you atleast find someone who can get the heat back on for you - good luck!
