Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

24 VAC means 24 volts AC (not DC). If you have a modern system (less than 20 years old) then it's highly likely you have 24 VAC. To be sure I need the brand and model of your furnace or boiler
