SOURCE: hooking up the thermostat
Thermostats are typically low voltage only no more than 24volts that is supplied from the transformer in your heating unit. you need to look at your low voltage wiring that is in the furnace and write down the terminals that are hooked up. Usually (this is a very typical set up) red wire goes to R which supplies 24 volts. green goes to G powers fan motor, white to W terminal and blue or yellow goes to Y terminal this terminal will usually have another wire in its terminal with it to control an outdoor ac unit likely another red or white wire, and lastly the C terminal has a white wire. That is for a basic heating and cooling system just match how they are hooked up at the main unit to the terminals on your thermostat. the thermostat is just a switch breaking and connecting terminals that allow voltage to carry through it. Shut down your unit while working on it as not to blow the transformer otherwise you are gonna need to replace it to if it isnt fused, that is probably my most common repair from people who have tried to change their own thermostat. Hope this helps

can you manually fire the unit w/o the thermostat by shorting 2 of the 3 wires, there may be more wires than that, but you should be able to fire it on 2 to 3 wires alone let me know it sounds like something is floating voltage wise on the unit

Hi, this is very easy for you to do.The 12/2 Romex wire coming in is the power which you know. What you do need to know, is the voltage coming in? Sometimes they will use 12/2 Romex with ground for 220, 240, operation. You need to know if the T-stat is Line voltage 220, or 240 volt. You have to have the same voltage for both for it to control. Reguardless of the voltage, lets say it is in the 220 and up range. You take one of the 12/2 wires, white or black and hook it to the black or red on the T-stat and the white to the other one, red or black. Thats it, you are done! If the T-stat is 2-pole I am sure it is a high, Line votage T-stat. Best of Luck,

It sound alright but You should draw out a wiring diagram on paper first before you tackle the job that way you know you're doing it right.
Good luck Dickson
