What brand and model is the thermostat and what kind of heating system do you have do you know the brand of furnace? Is there a control box near the furnace that the other end of the wires are connected to?

The brand our air conditioner system is « Goodman », I find the end of the wire where I saw the same label: ABCDE

Is this a mini split wall unit or a regular furnace with ductwork?

The thermostat looks like it's designed for a mini split system.

If you follow the wires leaving the white box in the ceiling to the Goodman unit see if they connect to terminals labeled R Y W G C etc.

Thank for your quick reply.

Usually you have to use the proprietary thermostat with mini splits. You can try contacting Goodman to find out if they have a adapter or something to use a nest with your system. They will probably need the model number of the system from the decal on it.
