Thermostat Requirements

"C" Wire

"C" wire (also known as the common wire) is required for the operation of the thermostat. It provides the power necessary to operate the Wi-Fi thermostat.

How to check for the "C" wire:

Remove the cover of your existing thermostat and confirm there are 5 wires (Note: sometimes a 5th wire can be tucked down the hole inside the wall if it's not needed for your current stat). If you do NOT find 5 wires, you do not have a "C" wire.

What if you don't have a "C" wire:

While there are DIY options available, we strongly recommend having a qualified HVAC contractor install your Wi-Fi thermostat. In most cases, a 5th wire will need to be run or a converter will need to be installed inside the furnace. As an alternative to the free thermostat, a $125 rebate is available for Honeywell's T5 Wi-Fi thermostat. It comes with the C wire and is a great alternative for 4-wire installations. Learn more.
