HVAC Technician: Gaztech, HVAC Technician replied 9 months ago

OK so t-stat may be on the fritz so lets get you heating.

Take t-stat face plate off and expose wiring, then take the wire off W terminal and wire off R terminal then put the 2 wire together, that should start your furnace, then seperate wires when house is warm.
