My furnace (gas) has C G Y W R
for controls.

Stat itself (digital) has Y RC RH (jumper in place on rh an rc) W G C H2 H1

what I would like to do is use the "cool" function of the thermostat to strictly start the blower. I have no "cooling" in place, I just would like to run the blower on the t-stats "cool" cycle to help circulate the air.


any input?

thanks in advance.

another question, on the furnace circuit board, what two control leads do I "jump" to start the blower?

any input?

thanks in advance.

If I'm understanding you correctly, you shouldn't have to do anything. On any call, cool or heat, the thermostat should put 24 volts on the G wire, this is the wire to the furnace that turns on the fan.

Just hook your 5 wires to the same terminals on the new thermostat. R goes to both RC and RH on the stat.

Jumping R and G at the furnace should turn on the fan.

Most thermostat will energize both Y and G when calling for cooling, so you should not need to do anything other than verify your G thermostat wire runs to the air handler's G terminal.

Let us know if that doesn't work, and please post make and model of thermostat.

if you set cool with the fan in auto setting the fan will cycle with the setting of the temperature on the stat the lower you set it the longer it will run due to no evap section and condenser.take a bucket of ice and slide it into the return up from the filter for some minimal cooling of that return air:eek:

Thank you everyone.

I did get the blower to run.
Thank you.
I need to understand for myself, so I will learn more.
I am very thankful for the help. I will now try and learn more of what's going on, and don't be surprised if I come back with some questions.
thanks again.
