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.
If you already have a programmable thermostat, you may think you’re enjoying the latest advancements in thermostat technology. However, there’s another step up from being able to program your thermostat, which is the ability to program it from anywhere, anytime. Why does this matter, you may ask? Once you realize why we love smart thermostats, you’ll love them, too!
