upgrading the thermostat

How can I upgrade my thermostat to a more advanced one ? Can I just remove the old one and install a new one or is there other things I need to take into consideration before switching ?

Follow the directions, mark the wires before you remove the old one, and also turn off the power to the hvac system before you even awap the thermostat out.

This ain't rocket science.


Ren: Now listen, Cadet. I've got a job for you. See this button? Ren: Don't touch it! It's the History Eraser button, you fool! Stimpy: So what'll happen? Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?
