Customer Question
I am replacing a...

I am replacing a white rodgers thermostat(cool, off, heat, EMER) with one that actually will change over from cool to heat for days that reach 85 and nights that reach low 50's..

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?

I have a new Honeywell th8000 and I don't know where to connect the white wire on the honeywell...It was on W2 for the white rodgers. Blue was on C, Red on R, Green on G, Orange on O/B and Yellow on Y. The last five make sense but not the white wire???

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

There is a W for conventional but I'm connecting to heat pump and there is C-Blue, G-Green, Y-Yellow, O/B-Orange, R-Red no W.
HVAC Technician: Rick, HVAC Supervisor replied 11 months ago

W is single stage heat whatever type of heating equipment you have. W2 is 2 stage so if W doesn't work try W2
