Does C wire have voltage?

The C wire, a.k.a. the “common wire”, allows a constant flow of 24 VAC (volts AC) power to a smart thermostat. However, the C wire doesn’t provide the actual source of power to the thermostat. The wires that provide the source of power are the R wires (or hot wires).

How do you test if C wire has power?

Quote from the video:

Blue wires

Blue wires are also called “C” wires because they are the Common wire. C wires are necessary for any “smart” thermostat that needs to be connected to a power source 24/7, regardless of your heat pump type.

No the Rc is the red wire. You need 5 wires or more for this to run with all the functions. You can use one of the other wires but you have to drop control of the fan. It will only come on when furnace comes on.

Can I jump R to C wire?

C is a common neutral wire. You can’t jump it from Rh as that is a 24v wire. You need a third wire, C, to return to the unit and hook to the common side of the transformer. For ease of thought, think of R as “hot” and C as “ground”.
