Customer Question
We have a taco...

We have a taco 506 zone switching relay and a venstar T1800 thermostat and need a wiring diagram for them to hook them together. It’s for forced hot water.

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

We just need a wiring diagram for it to function.

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

Yes
