A heating thermostat can help you save money by limiting the amount of energy used in your home. Most modern heaters are equipped with a thermostat installed by the manufacturer. If you want to update your device, or if you want to replace a broken thermostat, you can see that the wiring installation is the most complicated part of the process. The following steps will guide you through the work of wiring your thermostat.
Materials needed:

* Screwdriver
* Pliers
* Cutter

Step 1 - Know your heater thermostat

Different levels require different thermostat wiring. You must also identify your model heater, models may also vary in the number of son they extend. Make sure your furnace and thermostat are compatible. If they do not match, you should not install the thermostat in any case, because you might create a fire hazard.
Step 2 - Turn off power

Before going further, you should make sure the power is turned off at the switch outside.
Step 3 - Access Cable

Remove your old thermostat. Remove wall plate by loosening the wall. Plaque often hides the son you need. Use the pliers to cut the son damaged or broken.
Step 4 - Install cables

If you have read the instructions supplied with your heating thermostat, you should know where the son go. Remove the side of the radiator and connect the son in the connector strain relief, which will be noted on the instruction manual that came with your heater. Leave a foot or so of wire for connection to the thermostat. Turn the water heater inside out to ensure that the son from the camera are fully connected to the interior, especially on the connector pigtail grounding. Run a length of wire farther from the device, through the hole in the wall.
Step 5 - Connect the water heater thermostat

heater thermostats come with a series of letters inscribed on the sides of their wire terminals, small holes each filled with a small screw. Each letter corresponds to a color of wire from the device. For example, "R" or "RC" connect terminals to the red wire.

Unscrew your terminal, but take care not to completely remove the screw. Then proceed to push the wire through the hole you created and then tighten the tiny screws that hold the son in place. You may need to remove the insulation around each wire. If so, use tongs or a wire cutter, but does not include the insulation too. Take care not to touch the son naked when they are connected to the terminals.
