The red to O/B does not sound right. Typically red would go to Rc-RH.

Go to your furnace and tell me what color wires are on which terminals at the furnace.

red was on red R or RH and blue was on C or RC// Orange wasn't hooked up. I changed the wiring on the thermostat. Now just waiting for the house to warm up. Hopefully it cuts off after it reaches 68 degrees. I'll keep you posted. Thanks for the advice, I should have known.
