I have a Carrier...

I have a Carrier TP-PRH01-A programmable thermostat but it is not WiFi capable. I would like to replace it with a Honeywell WiFi programmable thermostat. Can you tell me which model(s) you would recommend?

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, do you think this is a larger HVAC problem, or something specific to the thermostat?

I have no problems with either the HVAC or the Carrier Thermostat. I would like to replace the non-wifi thermostat with a wifi thermostat.

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

I would like to but want to make sure I get the wiring correct. I have a photo of the current wiring to the carrier thermostat but the wiring lettering for the honeywell thermostats are different.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not that I know of. Any additional info you need from me to make a product recommendation?

Russ here. Honeywell WiFi 9000 is a very good replacement. Also Honeywell Lyrics T6 is a good one. I recommend the 9000. Customer frisky right out of box and easy install. Russ
