I'm an electrician and will be happy to help you out. I need a little more information to answer accurately first. 1) What is the brand and model number of the "ceiling fan with remote". 2) If replacing / adding switches, how many locations will control the fan / light fixture? Please provide this info and I'm sure we can get this working very quickly.
The Yellow wire is for cooling, the white is for heating, the red is for power, the green is for blower fan, the blue is your common wire, all you should have to do is color code the wires to the thermostat. The thermostat should have the colors labeled R,W1,G,Y,B or C for common if it's wired correctly at the Air Handler or evaporator. The blue wire should go to B, or C.
White is your neutral so white goes to white. Blue on the fan is for the light kit you need to wire that to the wire from your switch so it works the lights. Black is the hot wire that is always hot not switched so tie that to the wire that is not on your switch. Green is ground so green to green. white to white / green to green/ black to black/ red to blue/
At the fan green is ground, blue is to turn on the fan, black turns on the light. I believe at your house wiring white is neutral and goes to the white in the fan. The purple and yellow are to switch on the fixtures, you can connect the purple to the blue, and the yellow to the black.
Here is some basic info to help you. On the thermostat the letters mean... G is for your blower fan, and is usually green, Rc and Rh are power for the heating and cooling circuit (24v) and are usually red; Y (or in this case Y/O) is power to the cooling contactor (outside the house) and is usually yellow, and W (or in this case W/B) is the common wire, and is usually white. It kind of sounds like the people who installed the old thermostat followed these guidelines, so your best chance is to go to the heating unit and seeing where the wires connect to. Hope this helps
There is no real color code for wiring but the standard is red wire to r, yellow wire to y,white wire to w, green wire to g, blue wire to c. since there's no c on your t- stat its probably battery operated, but in your case im betting white wire to w, and blue wire to g.
Depending on where the wires were connected on the old thermostat, would be the best place to start, but if that is not an option you could try to trace the wires back to your furnace and see where they connect to. It appears you have either an oil fired furnace, or a single stage heat pump. If you need more assistance please just provide type of heat used. Hope this helps
