Question about Heating & Cooling
The most common wiring is: This sometimes varies as to installers preferance.
Red wire is your supply power to the T-stat. R terminal
Green wire is the blower fan. G terminal
Yellow wire is compressor contactor Y terminal
older units used a blue wire to Y
White wire is heat auxilary or black wire W terminal
Orange wire is reversing valve O terminal
Blue wire is the common C terminal
Black wire can be emergency heat E terminal
Best thing to do is replace wire for wire from t-stat to t-stat
or write down the colors to which terminal on the old t-stat and match to the new. make sure you SECURE POWER to the Air Handler, furnace and condenser before replacing any t-stat.
It is very easy to short the wires out if the power is left on and take out your A/H low voltage fuse or transformer.
