Me and my roomate tried to put in a programmable thermostat today in order to help regulate the house a bit better.
We came home with the new product.. which is for a heat pump system (which is what we have). Turned the breakers to the air unit and heating units off and labeled all the wires on the current thermostat.
We put the new one in per the instructions (with a little help from the toll free number too)..and when we go to fire everything back up nothing works!
So, the makers of the thermostat say we likely blew a fuse in the central a/c blower. Which I checked.. and shows 0 ohm (OL) on this multimeter.. unless I'm using it wrong??
Anyway, so I've put the old analog thermostat back in. Again, nothing works. I've checked the breakers on the central unit, the heat pump outside and of course the main breaker box. I've got the old thermo wired exactly how it came off...
Nothing's goin.. the house is sweltering hot!
Can anyone give me any advice?
