Customer Question
Hi. I am...

Hi. I am installing an Emerson programmable thermostat for a 14 year old Ruud furnace. Assuming it is a single stage system but thermostat has a "power stealing switch". Will it ork on the Ruud?

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

Specific to the thermostat. I am replacing the old one

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

Yes

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

Just need to know if my furnace (Ruud Achiever 90 Plus) is compatible with the thermostat "power stealing switch"
