What to Know About C-Wire If you’re upgrading your HVAC thermostat, it’s a good thing to find out in advance if your existing system provides a c-wire. Today’s smart thermostats provide a great deal more options and convenience such as wifi connectivity and a bigger, brighter, multi-functional control screen. These improvements typically draw more electricity than the existing thermostat you’re replacing. The c-wire (“c” stands for “common”) is an important extra electrical wire that enables continuous 24-volt power to operate newer smart thermostats. If you don’t have one installed with your existing model, you’ll probably need to have it installed in order to adequately power the new unit.

"Josh was very courteous and professional. He took the time to explain to me and show me what was going on inside the furnace. I felt really bad that we needed to call him out on a Sunday but with the inside of the furnace iced up our air just wasnt working and he got us up and running in no time"

"Always a tremendous experience with Hartman Brothers. I have used them for more than 25 years and gotten to know their people more like friends/family than vendors... because that's exactly how they treat their customers! Always a pleasure to deal with and their work is exceptional as a bonus. Would give them 6 Stars if it was an option."

"Brian showed me what was wrong with my air conditioning unit and explained everything so I could understand. He spoke to Vicki at the office regarding a needed part that would have to be ordered. They could have slapped a generic part on, but it would have only been a short-term fix. Instead of taking the easy way out, they are getting the part made for my unit so it will stay fixed, and they are coming back to finish the job as soon as they have the part. Hartman Brothers is ethical, knowledgeable, friendly, and they do the job right! I highly recommend them!"

"Every thing went well, even though he had bad news that the unit needed to be replaced due to the fact that the unit was 18 years old and the refrigerant used in the day was R22 that it cant be purchased because of government regulations, now we will see what the estimate will be. The technician seems to be knowledgeable and was very professional about his work."
