2. Just 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. Reuse your old thermostat.

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.
