How To change an old thermostat
First, you'll need to shut off power to the thermostat. You can do this by locating your circuit breaker. This is an important step to ensure your safety.
Next, remove the screws that hold your thermostat to the wall. Pull the thermostat away from the wall. You will see a few wires that you need to address. Pay attention to how the old thermostat is wired; you may consider taking a picture.
See where the wires are connected. There should be a cable for the A/C, and also one for the water; which are attached to the thermostat's screws.
Usually, you'll see the screws marked with letters. Before you remove any wires, you'll want to cover up the wiring with masking tape. Write the letter from the screw on top of the tape.
You can use a screwdriver to loosen up the screws. Take the wires out from the screw.
Remove the mounting-plate screws and remove the thermostat from the wall surface.
Placing your New Thermostat
Your new thermostat should come with stickers. Place the stickers onto the wires. You can reference the old thermostat's wiring and check your new manual. You'll then need to loosen the terminal screws.
Place the new base over the wires and make sure it's level.
Next, drill the holes making sure to follow the directions in the manual. Place the plastic inserts into your wall.
You can then use a combination stripper to trim the wires if necessary.
Once it's connected you can activate the power back on.
Checking the Functionality
As soon as you've figured out just how to change out your old analog thermostat with a digital thermostat, you're practically prepared to go. But first, let's check to make sure it is working properly.
You can set the thermostat to your furnace. The AC will come at a different time. Let them have 5 minutes to activate. If it's not working correctly take a look at what you did and make sure no steps were missed.
At times, you may need to reset the thermostat. You should find a button that allows you to reset it.
Once you check to make sure it is functioning, you'll need to program your thermostat. This is where you need to check the manual for specific instructions, depending on your new thermostat.
A programmable thermostat is your best option to save on your electricity bill.

Nick was wonderful did an outstanding job, explained all options and extremely thorough. She will call back and use us again. She was very pleased and very happy that she didnt have to clean up after him.
Detailed orientated and honest inspection. Chad took his time and explained everything that was going on very well. The service fee was fair for the small issues he fixed, and he was able to make a referral for water restoration for us, I would use his service again and plan to when our water heater goes out.
Joey was fantastic. Really great service!
"They were very professional and on time, the technician did what he was suppose to do then cleaned up and left me with instructions on how to finish installing the parts after I finish doing some tile work that needs to be done."
I would like to recognize both Taylor and Emanuel for both outstanding customer service, professionalism,and craftsmanship on a recent repair at my home.
