Q:Is this the wire needed for a honeywell WI Fi thermostat

Answer This Question

A:  This is the wire that runs from your furnace / air handler to your thermostat location.

by|Apr 24, 2022

    A:  Yes but this is only 2 wires..you'd be better off with 18/5 so you can plug into each required jack (r1, y, c, etc.). Best to consult a local professional

    by|Apr 24, 2022

      A:  This thermostat wire is very durable solid copper, and I used it for the thermostats on 2  free standings natural gas stoves for heating my basement. If your digital thermostat only requires two wires, then this will be perfect. Some furnace applications require four or more wires. Remove your old thermostat from the wall and see how many wires are Required.If your old thermostat was working you can reuse the old wire.

      by|Apr 23, 2022

        A:  No, you should use whatever wiring you already have installed. Generally no new thermostat wiring is needed for a new wi fi thermostat. Unless none exists.

              Used this for wiring a door bell system with 3 chimes and 2 door bell cameras as the gauge of the wire is slightly larger and handles the power consumption better. Works great!

              I had NJR install all new furnace and new water heater. They stapled through my existing wire numerous times rerouting it for the exhaust on the new power vent unit. I had to run new wire from new transformer up to chime and then from chime to doorbell wire where it was still ok. It works flawlessly for my Ring Doorbell Pro! I do recommend this product.

              Excellent wire for doorbell ringer. I needed a wire extension for my doorbell ringer and this did the trick. The white and red colors matched my existing wiring.

              the two wires 1 red and 1 White are loosely encased in a brown sheath, this is better than having the wires twisted together because it is easier to pull the wires. i have had this wire for about a month. I used wire nuts to connect this wire to my transformer and fixture. I am using this wire partly outside and partly inside to run between a rain guage heater and the transformer. It is functioning the way I hoped it would.
