heat


Generally, when dealing with line voltage thermostats, a 2-wire unit is a single pole, and a 4-wire unit is a double pole.

Double pole thermostats will completely disconnect both legs of a circuit when it is placed in the "off" position. This qualifies the thermostat as a "disconnecting means" when properly wired.

Single pole thermostats do not have an "off" position.
