Give me a few moments to compare the thermostats. Can you also provide model on indoor and outdoor units and tell me what wires were connected to the old thermostat?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
the old thermostat in the living room has V+ and V-. It is connected a control module that has RC, W/W1, G, Y/Y2, C, Y1/W2, DAT, SRTN, & HUM. The DAT and SRTN lines go to the unit outside.

OK the Tr- thermostat is using the control module .You may or may not be able to use the Nest .

As a minimum it will require running additional wires between thermostat and air handler.

Please provide model on Module and also on your units so I can see if it is possible to use the NEST.

Bryant Preferred 90+ HVAC system with the T6-PRH-A thermostat. The control module may be A07219, but it is the one that goes with the thermostat.

Additional wires will not be a problem
Expert:  airheatman replied 10 months ago.

OK the furnace will have a model inside burner compartment.Something like 926T100V or similar.

Can you get that for me? And tell me exactly what wires are connected to furnace board from the module.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
We see all the wires at the control board on the main unit, but can not figure the DAT & SRTN lines that go to the outside unit
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Yep.. Standby please
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
maybe 334942-101 Rev. A.. from this board, Y1 goes to W2/Y1 on the control module, green goes form G to G, Blue is Com to Com, White goes from W1 to W1, yellow goes Y/Y2 to Y/Y2. The control module is #TS-PRH01-A.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
The control module has the DAT and SRTN connections to the outside unit.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
the interior has a sticker with the model #CNPVP4821ATAABAA, if that helps
Expert:  airheatman replied 10 months ago.


Now here is what we will do.We will completely remove the old thermostat and the module .

Then we will run new wires to thermostat from furnace. (I will tell you where to connect them)

That should be OAT and SRTN.

Those 2 wires will be unused and taped off. They go to an outdoor temperature sensor in outdoor unit to provide the thermostat with current outdoor temp. They are not needed as NEST will use WIFI for this information.
