How do you run AC wire from furnace to thermostat?

Quote from the video:
Quote from Youtube video: Basically take the the plate here take your transformer. You're gonna make your connections. For everything just like they were on the thermostat that you took off with the exception of two.

Do I need a jumper from R to RC?

If you have a wire in the R terminal, and another wire (not a jumper) in the RC terminal, you will not need to connect the R and RC terminals. See our Basic Wiring article for more info here.

How do you combine a heating and cooling thermostat?

Quote from the video:
Quote from Youtube video: Two thermostats from two separate heating cooling systems. Into one thermostat. So one being a heater or boiler. And another one being an air conditioner.

What is R terminal on thermostat?

R – The R terminal is the power for the thermostat. This comes from the transformer usually located in the air handler for split systems but you may find the transformer in the condensing unit.

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”.

Can I use RC wire as C wire?

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.

Is RC wire same as R?

RC is no different and simply means red cooling. The wire is generally red, although there is no color standardization — but more importantly, the “R” really means that the wire and terminal are hot; it’s a live electrical wire. The RC wire connects to the RC terminal, which controls the cooling system.

Does R wire go to RH or RC?

An R wire can go into a Nest Learning Thermostat’s Rc or Rh connector.

Do I use R or RC on thermostat?

In a thermostat, the R wire is responsible for powering the entire HVAC system (through a transformer). If you have both an Rh (Red-heat for powering the heating) and an Rc (Red-cool for powering the cooling), then the R wire can be connected to either Rh or Rc.

What is R and RC wire?

There is no standard for the colour of the RH wire, but most units use a red one. The RC wire, on the other hand, refers to “red cooling”. It’s the same with the RH wire in that it powers the thermostat. For the RC, it powers the cooling system.

What is r on a furnace?

If you just have an R wire, it’s responsible for powering your entire HVAC system (through the use of a transformer). If you have both an Rh and an Rc wire, the former powers the heating and the latter powers the cooling (using two separate transformers).

What’s the difference between RC and RH on a thermostat?

RC: The RC terminal is the 24-volt cooling power supply. RH: The RH terminal is the 24-volt heating power supply. (Note: The RC and RH terminals are jumpered together in a four-wire heat/cool system and a single-stage heat pump system but not in a five-wire heating/cooling system.)

Where does Rh wire go on thermostat?

The Rh wire connects to your heating system as opposed to your cooling system. This wire may be red without an “H” attached to it, depending on if you have a dual transformer setup. The Rh wire connects to the RH terminal on your thermostat.

Should nest be connected to RC or RH?

If you only have one R wire (no Rh or Rc), you can connect your R wire to either Rc or Rh on the Nest thermostat. Note: Don’t connect any Jumper wires to the Nest thermostat. If you don’t have an Rc wire, the Rh wire is the power wire for both your heating and cooling systems.

What wire controls heat on thermostat?

white wire

Thermostat Wiring Tips

If your thermostat controls your heat, you will have a white wire. The Y wire is yellow and connects to your air conditioning compressor. The G wire is green and connects to the fan.

What happens if you wire a thermostat wrong?

Potential consequences of improper installation could include: Electric shock. Blowing a circuit breaker. Damaging the thermostat unit, the electrical system or even the AC/furnace unit itself.

Can I use my G wire as AC wire?

Option #3: Use a G-Wire as a C-Wire

If there is no hidden C-wire, you can use a G-wire instead. However, you will not be able to use your fan independently when the heating or cooling isn’t running. Also, many HVAC systems are incompatible with this solution, including: HVAC systems using electric heat.

Where do I connect the C wire on my furnace?

Quote from the video:
Quote from Youtube video: The common terminal is going to be right here so if you're installing. Something you would stick the wire. Into this screw terminal from the bottom.

What is the C wire on a furnace?

What is a C-Wire? A common wire (C-Wire) provides Wi-Fi thermostats continuous power by connecting it to a heating and cooling system (e.g. furnace). C-Wires are required on most Honeywell Wi-Fi thermostats, with the exception of the Smart Round Thermostat (formerly known as the Lyric Round).

What does blue wire on thermostat do?

Blue wires are for heat pumps. This wire connects to terminal B on your thermostat.
