Question about Heating & Cooling
Your thermostat wires will go directly to your furnace, then from your furnace they will go to the outside condenser. Without knowing what model and year furnace you have, or if it's a heat pump system or not, I can't tell you exactly hoe they hook up. For most units now, they have a electrical board inside the furnace that all the thermostat wires hook to. The terminals will be marked for each wire. The condenser wires will usually be connected to the Y(Cooling) and C/B (Common) terminals. Now if you have a heat pump system, it can be a little more tricky. Your standard split system will have 2 wires (usually Red and White) going to the condenser, while your Heat Pump will have up to 7 wires and will sometimes connect to a box before going into the furnace. Like I said, it's difficult to tell without knowing what furnace and system you have, but hopefully I have already answered your question. Hope this helps and good luck!

The wires going to the condensing unit are shown as red and white however these colors can be different. The important part of these two wires going to the air conditioner condensing unit is that the one wire orginates from the thermostat Y terminal and terminates at the condenser and the other wire originates from the common side of the transformer which is most commonly installed in the air handler. On rare occassions the transformer can be found in the condensing unit not because the manufacturer installed the transformer in the condenser but because the transformer was blown and replaced in the condenser instead of the air handler. Additionally, the colors here are typical but can be different depending on who wired the unit and their color coding system. 99% of the HVAC technicians will use this color code but there is an occassional oddball who knows better than everyone else or the wiring color combination was not available for the wire used to wire the equipment.
