    1. MP is correct.

      Also:
      There may be a problem with your t-stat or there might be a setting that needs to be cleared before your stat will function again.

      What is the make and model of your t-stat? Perhaps we can help diagnose your problem better.

    2. If it’s a boiler, as in you have radiators as opposed to ductwork, then there is no filter to change.
      Many newer thermostats add that “filter” reminder function because about 80% of the country heats their homes with forced air furnaces.

      Either way, the filter reminder does not interfere with the actual heating function, so that’s not the problem you’ve got right now.
