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.
Joey and Moses came out to replace a waterline and were AWESOME!!! They answered my questions, where patient, friendly (respectful) and VERY professional! This my 2nd time using 1800 plumber and both visits were great! I look forward to continue using them!
Nick was very nice, professional, and explained what he was going to do first and if we had to do something else we talked first. Nick knew his job. Great work. Appreciate you!
Tony and Carlos are awesome in what they do. They did a great job on about 20 different projects for my family and me. They did security lights patio lights front porch lights. Ran all the electrical for our new master bath remodel. Added on some new interior lights and changed out some switches. I have light where there once was darkness. Thanks guys.
Chad was a pro..... personal..... and got right to work...... he explained each step he was taking and why .... very pleased with his. service and will highly recommend
First plumber we called wanted $3500.00 to replace everything. Emanuel came out and suggested we change one part and less than $300.00 later we was up and running again. From Mark, to Taylor, and then on to Emanuel the whole experience was professional and I will be a customer for life. Hopefully not often though. Great working with you guys!.
I had Kyle U as my plumbing tech. He did a great job and worked really hard to get to the bottom of things (like roots). He was also polite and honest.
Had a plumbing issue on a Sunday afternoon. Joey came out and got the problem resolved. He was very courteous, professional and knew exactly what to do.
Kyle Urban is great! He does beautiful work and is a great guy! We will request him personally from now on.
