If unsure how to connect your current wiresContact our Technical Assistance Line or your HVAC service company.
Two wires control a heat only systemConnect one wire to W1 and the other to RH.
Two wires control a cool only systemConnect one wire to RC and the other to Y.
Two wires control heating AND cooling.Currently no Lux controls are compatible with this system.
Three wires for forced air heat only system, where the previous thermostat did not have a clock or timerThe previous RH or RC wire is the 24-volt transformer wire. Connect it to RH. Leave jumper connecting RH to RC. Connect the forced air heat system to W1, and the fan wire to G.
Three wires control heating and cooling. One wire operates heat, one operates cooling and the third provides 24 VACConnect the 24-volt power wire to RH. Install a jumper connecting RH to RC. This jumper is usually pre-wired. Connect the heat wire to W1, and the cooling wire to Y.
Three wires control a cooling only system. One wire operates the compressor, one operates the fan and the third provides 24 VACConnect the 24-volt power wire to RC. Connect the cooling wire to Y and the fan wire to G.
Four wires control a heating and cooling, electric, gas or oil, forced air system that is NOT a heat pumpConnect the 24 VAC transformer wire to RH or RC. Install a jumper connecting RH to RC. This jumper is often prewired. Connect the heat wire to W1, the cooling wire to Y and the fan wire to G.
Four wires control a Single Stage Heat Pump. They were labeled: G, Y, R or RH or RC, and either B or 0 was usedDo not connect wires to both B and 0. Connect the reversing valve wire to B or 0, just as the previous thermostat. Install a jumper wire from RH to RC. Connect 24 VAC wire to RH too. Install a second jumper wire from W1 to Y. Connect compressor wire to Y and the fan wire to G.
Six or seven wires control a Heat Pump with an auxiliary heat stage. They were labeled: G, Y, R or RH or RC, and W or W2. Either B or 0 was used. And Emergency wire E is present. The C wire is common for 24 volt ac operation.Do not connect wires to both 0 and B. Connect the reversing valve wire to 0 or B, just as the previous thermostat. Connect 24 VAC wire to RH and leave in the factory supplied jumper wire between RH and RC. Connect compressor wire to Y and fan wire to G. It is not necessary to wire the X, E or X2 terminal. Connect W or W2 to the W2 terminal and add a jumper wire from W1 to Y. If you have a C (common wire) connect it to the C terminal. Move dip switch #1 located on the back of the thermostat to the ON position. Set the GAS/ELECTRIC switch on the back of the thermostat to the ELECTRIC position. Once both of these changes have been made be sure to press the HW_RST button.
