    I recently purchased a house and it has a Carrier Infinity 96 furnace. I cant afford to purchase the infinity control thermostat, so I bought a honeywell 7 day thermostat. I am trying to install the thermostat by myself and have run into some problems. In the instructions for the honeywell it says if wires were hooked to W1, Y1, and W2 some system modification is required. Call your local heating and cooling contractor for assistance. I would call my local hvac guy but its the weekend, can anyone help?

    I would be happy with the old one but its a non programmable model. I want to be able to set up my temps and times so I dont need to turn down the heat when I leave and turn it back up when I get home. Also it will save me money on my utilities bill.

    I will wait if I need to, I was just wondering if anyone knew what would need to be done. This is my first house and I really cant afford to pay an hvac pro to come to the house.

    This is put in there for a reason.
    Keep messing with it and you’ll have no heat and an even larger bill.
    No professional here will even attempt to talk you through it. Quite while your ahead and call someone in the morning.

    Yup, thats right, no pro will help you thru it. this is only for pros to look and laugh at homeowners in trouble. Just ask "dummy".On a previous post he asked some simple questions about running out of oil , and got deleted by probably some ASSociate pro member.

    This advise was not given to “Laugh” at homeowners but to save them more trouble. If just one simple mistake is made with the control wiring he could burn out the Transformer, Control Board, LV Wiring, and these are minor results.

    This is not a D.I.Y. Site for good reason.

    If you think you can talk him through it then do it. And when something really bad happens you can live with it.

    As far as the dummy post, IMHO the associates made the correct call and pulled some very bad and dangerous advice from someone with no qualifications.

    Enough.

    The site rules are what they are.

    No,

    That is not enough, not yet

    Deejoe,

    Your attitude towards the Associates is despicable at the very least. It is people like you that make this site unprofessional not the guys that work their cans off behind the scenes keeping up with the rule breakers like you. Yes, that is what I said. Rule #7… don’t argue with the boss and #1… starting flame. Rule #13… Don’t be a PIA. It is also not the first time you post your best guess after a thread has been ruled DIY by a moderator. The rules are put here so we can have a professional site and they seem to be way over your learning curve.

    I will not write you a little email asking you to stop. You will stop or you will not be here any more. You will not be able to post, which in my opinion is a good thing, until Thanksgiving. You will be on a day to day after that.

    Be good or be gone, makes no difference to me.

    Sorry everyone, thanks for your time.
