Is my thermostat wiring compatible?

The Nest install tells me that it is not compatible but I’m wondering why? Or am I just identifying wires wrong?

Hi Jake,

 

Thanks for responding. I have since resolved this issue with some help, and am enjoying my Nest thermostat.

Just an FYI, what was confusing a lot of people (not just me), in my pic and my wiring... see the brown 'RC' wire at the top looking like it's an extra R wire? Yeah, well, that turned out to be connected to NOTHING in my furnace. LOL I guess it was just an extra wire the previous HVAC pro had run for possible use, didn't need, and just decided to stash on RC just to confuse everyone after him. 🙂

Hey djacobsongoogle,

 

I would be more than happy to help you out and take a closer look. Reviewing the picture, I am having a hard time seeing the labels of all the wires. Do you mind providing me with those? If you are also unsure on how to wire the device, you can have a Nest Pro come out and take a closer look. They would be able to install the device and ensure everything is working properly. Let me know once you have sent the labels, and I will be happy to review further.

 

Best regards,

Jake

Hey djacobsongoogle,

 

Glad to hear everything worked out! Not sure if the previous HVAC pro was just trying to play a joke or not, but it wasn't funny.😂 Please feel free to reach back out if you have any other questions from here, and enjoy that thermostat. 

 

Best regards,
