    Any tricks?

    Any tricks or secrets on getting t-stat wire that seems to be taped along the copper lines running from condenser to AHU?

    if they used a rain gutter ( as an example ) to run your line set, ( if outside of house ) drain line and low voltage wiring and its taped inside the gutter, suggest using a nylon electrical snake if you have one. If the line set ,drain line , low voltage wiring is inside a wall , it depends on how many times they wrapped or stapled or used wire ties, the low voltage wire to the stud or line set would depend on degree of difficulty tieing new to old then pulling. I suppose if it's in a wall you can try to pull to see if existing wire gives then take it from there or try a steel electrical snake

    Never going to happen.

    Only trick I know is to use a wireless controller.

    What's the reason for the new pull?
    The TRUE highest cost system is the system not installed properly...

    Do you go to a boat repairman with a sinking boat, and tell him to put in a bigger motor when he tells you to fix the holes?

    I agree. Honeywell just came out with a wireless module for the outdoor equipment. It's a bit pricey but comes in handy at times.

    Jackson Systems makes a reasonably priced wireless relay for the ODU.

    So you joined this board this month just to prove us wrong. Nady, nady, you are off my Christmas list! So there...

    It was a good situation, until everything went wrong!
    Rub some dirt on it and walk it off...
    We will always know it should have worked!

    Moved to Tech to Tech forum.

    Please stop posting tech questions in the AOP forums(those forums are for the equipment owners, not for tech questions). If you continue, I'll have to close them as DIY threads.
