What I want to talk about today is mercury thermostats how they're more energy-efficient and can allow you to save up to $200 a year on cooling or heating costs. New thermostats are safer for the planet and have less moving parts, which makes them more reliable.A perfect example of a common old thermostat is the Honeywell T 87, also the White Rodgers thermostat that is featured in this video. I want to talk about how you transfer your old wiring from a mercury thermostat to a new digital thermostat.
Some of the thermostats in this video include:
Honeywell Pro 3000
Honeywell Pro 4000
Honeywell Pro 8000
White Rodgers 1F89-211
Nest 3rd Generation Thermostat
You should always pay attention to your original wiring, how each color is on a separate terminal. This will help you out when connecting the wiring on the new thermostat. Sometimes you have to flip the switch on the back of the thermostats depending on which type of system you have. If you're going from mercury to a modern age digital thermostat the process can be simple if you just watch what you're doing to pay attention.
