Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I would like to assist you with your question today.

 

Please make sure you have a jumper wire connecting the "Rc" and "Rh" terminals

on the thermostat.

 

That should solve your thermostat issue.

 

Please press ACCEPT so that I get paid for my time if my answer has resolved your issue.

 

Respectfully yours,

Jeff Pearson
