uninstalling the existing unit

1.Turn the system power OFF from the existing thermostat. Turn the power to the HVAC system OFF at the main power panel or at the furnace.

2.Remove the existing thermostat cover to

access the wires from the wall.

(Some thermostats may have multiple covers, screws or other locking devices that must be removed or disengaged.)

3. Locate, but do not disconnect the wires.

(If wires are not visible, they may be connected to the back of the wall plate. Some models may have doors that open to expose the wires and mounting screws.)

Note: Wire colors do not always comply with standards, so wire color should be ignored. Refer to the existing terminal designation for proper identification.

*If wires marked Y & C are both present, C may be a Common wire and should not be used. If you have a wire marked C, do not connect it

to any terminal. This wire is used only for nonbattery powered thermostats.

5.Do not let the wires slip back into the wall during disconnection. You may want to secure the wires to the wall as you

disconnect them. After all wires are labeled, disconnect each wire and remove the existing wall plate.

4.Remove the wall plate and drill two 3/16” holes where marked.

5.Tap the plastic anchors into the holes until they are flush with the wall.

6.Reposition the wall plate on the wall, pulling the wires through the opening. Insert the mounting screws through the wall plate and into the anchors. Verify that the wall plate is visually level and securely tighten both screws.

Note: A jumper wire has been provided, connecting the RC and RH terminals for systems that do not provide both an RH and RC wire. If you have both an RH and RC wire, remove this jumper. If you do not have both an RH and RC wire, leave the jumper in

2.Match and connect the wires from the wall to the terminals as shown. Wires should be inserted behind the black terminal shields.

Tighten each screw after the connection has

been made.

(The ends of any extra wires should be wrapped in electrical tape and carefully pushed back into the wall.)
