Nonetheless, you need to locate the cables linking to your gasoline valve and follow them to your 24VAC transformer for the heating gear to determine where your “C” connection is going to be. In the event that you need advice about this, be sure to contact ecobee help.
Merely link the free cable into the connection point that is common.
IF YOU HAVE GOT NO ADDITIONAL WIRES
If you don’t have any extra cables, you’ve got two choices:
- Run a wire that is additional your thermostat down to your equipment
- Buy and put in a Fast-Stat Common Maker
ALTERNATE SOLUTION: 24VAC TRANSFORMER that is PLUG-IN
A different would be to power the ecobee by having a external 24VAC plug-in transformer.
This transformer may be connected to a wall surface, and will be wired the following:
- The transformer that is 24VAC would hook up to RC and C in the ecobee
- The 2 cables on your own old thermostat would connect with RH and W1 from the ecobee
NOTE: make sure the transformer can perform 24V AC production ( maybe not DC output)
Situation C:MY THERMOSTAT LINKS TO T/T TERMINALS
In case your thermostat cables hook up to T/T terminals, keep in mind that you will need a different 24VAC transformer to power the ecobee.
