Customer Question

I don't have central air but I still want a programmable thermostat. My very old thermostat has only two wires, one red and one white will this still work with a programmable thermostat?
JA: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?
Customer: I don't know what you mean? I haven't installed the new thermostat yet I'm just asking if it will work with a two wire system?
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes, I have done this before in two other homes.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: You aren't answering my question.

You can pick a Honeywell programmable thermostat up at Lowes or Home Depot. Install yourself very easy. They sell the 6000 and a 7500 touch screen. Either one will work. If you have problems I can help. Russ
