Do I have a single or multi-stage heat pump? Want programmable thermostat.
Asked Oct 9, 2007, 10:52 AM
Hi, I'm looking to replace my thermostat with a new programmable one, and I'm trying to figure out which ones might be compatible with my heat pump. I'm having trouble determining even what type of heat pump I have. Any help would be appreciated!
Here is the information I have:
On the unit outside:
BDP / Carrier
Product #: 542EBX042000AAAF
Model #: 542EB042
On the existing thermostat inside:
Payne Heat Pump
C: Black wire
R: Red wire
O: Orange wire
G: Purple wire
Y: Yellow wire
W1: White wire
W2: Brown wire
E: Blue wire
I believe the unit was installed in the early 1980s. Please help!

What do the wire colors mean?

Sorry for the lengthy post, just wanted to include all information. Thank you for your help.
