Two heating zones in house -- thermostat question

Sorry but I am clueless with these things:

I have two heating zones in my house (one for each floor), and i want to replace the two thermostats with electronic ones. Are there any unusual steps I need to take, when installing the thermostats, due to the two zones?

Usually there are no issues, just remove the old thermostat and wire up the new one the same way. Usually there are just two wires to connect although if the thermostat also controls air conditioning then there may be three wires.


States can help recovery from hurricanes and tornadoes by not requiring due digence or prompt and timely correction of substandard conditions, and by providing continued liability insurance where companies drop homeowners.

Just makw sure you match the wires.
If it is hot water than it is usually only 2 wires, if it also controls ac than you might have 4-5
This how it is usually with ac
White and red =heat red is jumped from rh to rc.
Most tstats the jumper is already installed
yellow= ac
green = fan relay
