Easy Of Installation To Install Honeywell Wi-fi Thermostat

The simple 3 part process to install a Honeywell Wi-Fi thermostat is easy enough for any do-it-yourself beginner. The first step is to make sure the power is OFF to the HVAC unit and to the thermostat. This can be done from the circuit breaker panel of your home. You can now safely remove the old thermostat from the wall. This will usually snap off with gentle pressure. Be certain to remove only the thermostat and not the wire connections within.

Next, you want to label the wires for ease of installation. This can be done quickly because the new thermostat will have wire sticky labels for you to use. Alternately, taking a picture of the wire terminal can also keep the wire colors clear. Click the link for more detailed information on installing your new Honeywell Wi-Fi thermostat. Once you’ve identified and labeled all of the wires, proceed to the next step.

The last portion to remove the old thermostat is to use a household screwdriver to loosen the wires from the terminals and take off the wallplate of the old unit. You should now be looking at a hole in the wall with wires sticking out of it. TIP: wrapping the wires around a pencil will keep them from falling back into the wall while you’re getting ready for the next step.

Now it’s just a matter of working in the reverse order to connect the labeled wires to the corresponding terminals on the new wall plate. Once all wires are secured, gently press any loose length of wire back into the wall hole so when you attach the new unit, it sits flat and tight against the wall plate.

That’s it! You can now refer to the user guide of your Honeywell Wi-Fi thermostat to set up the wifi connection with your home and to select the heating and cooling system your home uses.
