I am trying to setup a thermostat and the video instructions are useless.
It is written for the “give a man a fish” crowd. They provide no wiring diagram or troubleshooting table, that’s all I need.
A thermostat is just a simple switch triggered by a temperature monitor. The furnace does the fan delay on its own, it just needs a run signal.
All I need to know is two things- first, what are the power requirements- voltage and current at which terminals to power the device. If I don’t get that from my furnace I will just buy a 24V AC power supply, they are $15 at Jameco.
And I need to know which terminals on the thermostat control the heater on. I don’t have AC, and I can figure out which terminals do the same on my furnace.
This information should be somewhere easily accessible, The cutiese videos are at best irritating to me, you can’t go backwards and nothing is explained.
