I want to find the breaker thermostat.

Customer Question

***** *****.I want to find the breaker for the thermostat. Is it the samebreaker as the furnace?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: OK. I have two furnaces and two thermostats. I have changed the thermostats without cutting the power. However, I was thinking of putting the two furnaces (each with their own circuit of course) on one thermostat. Can this be done?
JA: OK got it. Last thing — HVAC Technicians generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied).

One thermostat can not control two furnaces as each has it's own 24 volt transformer to thermostat and this would cause a backfeed to burn up one or both transformers.
