thermostat installation

Hello, mt name is Tony. I really need some expert advice! My electricity had gotten disconnected awhile back, well when i got it reactivated my furnace nor central air unit would not work. I had someone come look at it a couple weeks ago, he told me he thought it was the thermostat. So I went to Lowes and picked up Hunter model#44860, (i guess thats what i needed because i have a heat pump). I installed it myself and I'm not sure if I have it right because I still have no heat. Ther wires from the wall were not labled and i have them as follows: Red to Rh, Yellow to Y1, Blue to Y2,White to W1, Black to W2, Brown to C,and Orange to O. Maybe i have them connected wrong? Maybe there is a problem somewhere else? Please give me your advice! I have 2 children and its only 10 degrees outside. Thank you so much! My e-mail is [email protected]

You need to match the wires from the outside unit to the thermostat; colors aren't always followed correctly. Find out which terminals the wires go to outside and then match them up inside to the right terminals as per owner's manual.
