Nest compatibility check - picture

Hi there,

posting this picture because the compatibility checker told me to do so.

Questions

  • one article I read said that proprietary systems are not compatible with nest. I don't know whether my system is proprietary, but I do have wires labeled O/B and C...wire O/B (orange) is linked up to O. Blue wire (labeled C) is connected to power.
  • Black wire is not connected to anything (but it is not a stranded wire) - it is NOT labeled. is this a ground? where would this connect on the nest thermostat?
  • thanks in advanced

added labels because they're not clearadded labels because they're not clearIMG_7411.jpg

Hey dpitfield,

 

I would be more than happy to take a closer look and assist you with the wiring. Do you mind me asking if you have used our Compatibility Checker yet? You would be able to enter the wires you are seeing, and it would let you know if you are indeed compatible.

 

If you are unsure on how to still wire the thermostat from there, you can also have a Nest Pro come out and take a closer look. They would be able to review the system and install the device. Please let me know if you have any questions from here, as I want to ensure you are good to go.

 

Best regards,

Jake

Jake,

The compatibility test test I may have a dual system.  Which I dont think I do.  Are you able to tell from the wiring picture I sent?

 

Thanks,

Darren

Hey dpitfield,

 

Taking a closer look at your system, I am seeing an E wire. This is usually linked with emergency heat. Do you happen to know if that is the case with your system? I am also seeing a stranded brown wire. Do you happen to know if this is still linked to your HVAC system? Please let me know. 

 

Best regards,

Jake
