I am replacing a...

I am replacing a RUUD 3aat86b9a1 with a Honeywell RTH2510/RTH2410v series.

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

First contact to web site. Have had a few Honeywells of the years at different homes

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

Yes, I would like to. I have the old unit off and new installed. I have it wired as per the instructions

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

Yes and Yes

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

I took photos of the old thermostats wiring, labeled the wires and connected them accordingly. This is our upstairs unit and works off a 4 year old unit. The old thermostat worked fine we just wants a more efficient thermostat to use
