So I can barely turn a screwdriver - but I need to replace a thermostat, and supposedly that is a rather simple DIY task -
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
I am replacing an old RiteTemp 8085c with a Honeywell RTH6530D
Looking at the RiteTemp manual, my current install is for a Heat Pump system with Auxiliary Heat
On the stat I am replacing (RiteTemp), the following wires were -
RH jumpered to RC
W jumpered to Y
My options on the new Honeywell - if I try to match are as -
Aux/E (W, W1, W2)
Rc (Jumpered to R)
The honeywell manual says to leave old C unconnected - no problem
My question is about the W, W2 and Y -
I assume my old W2 (white) will go to AUX
What about my old jumpered Y-W setup?
Do I not need to worry about it?
Do I jump the Y and Aux terminal - even though I already have a W2 wire going to AUX? Just a bit confused.
Again - any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
