How do you install a home thermostat?
Pretty Simple. Follow the instructions Pretty simple, really. They typically have 3 wires, labelled to match terminals on the furnace, with pass through controls to the AC. Since the furnace fan is used to blow AC.
Buy a programmable and read the instructions. If you need to fish the wire through a wall, that's the the trickiest part.
If you have an OLD furnace, and you still need to ask this, you should probably get a por to do it.

Answer . When you take the old one out note the possission the old one comes out. Also on most cars the only fit one way properly.. The spring end goes in the intake manifold
Answer . Remove the top water line from the radiator to the water pump. The thermostat is found there.
Answer . \nFollow the top radiator hose back to the engine. There is where the t-stat housing is. Remove the hose, remove the housing,\nremove the old t-stat, clean gasket surfaces install the t-stat into the housing with the spring side sticking out toward \nthe engine, use spray adhesive to at…tach the gasket(DO NOT USE RTV), reinstall everything and be careful to evenly tighten \nthe housing bolts until they are snug(DO NOT RAUNCH HARD ON THE BOLTS). Fill the cooling system with a 50/50 mix of coolant \nand water, and burp the system. ( Full Answer )
\n. \n Thermostat \n. \n. \nThe car in this answer is a 97 Accord, four door, four cylinder. Locate the thermostat by following the bottom hose of the radiator (the standard is to follow the top, however it is not there) it should lead toward the back of the engine compartment. The hose will… connect to a joint connected to the block, this where you will remove the hose (catch the fluid in something a pan on the ground is easiest) feeling inside the port of the block you should find the thermostat. Remove the two bolts holding the joint to the block, the bottom of the two is the most difficult, I move a few things out of the way, pull out the old stat, line up the new one (it's an off-center type) put it in don't forget the new gasket, refill the system with fluid and check and test.

\n. \n Answer \n. \nIf the thermostat does not have a loose or broken wire coming from your unit than the transformer in the unit may be bad. A transformer is used to step down the power to usely 24 volts or less and is used to run the controls in the unit as well as to power the thermostat. …The transformer should be easy to spot. If you are familar with the use of a maltiemeter frist check for the incomimg 110 or 220 volts that should be coming in. Next check the power going out of the transformer. If you have control power at the unit than check it at the thermostat. Some units have a fuse that you can replace. Make sure you turn off the power before doing any work. Hope this is helpful.

You take it to the dealer and pay the piper. This repair requires you to take off the exhaust manifold and tear down into the engine. That means retorking to spec, gaskets, the whole mess. Read the posts and see how many do-it-yourselfers ended up with an exhaust smell (leak) after the repair with t…he heater on. Unfortunately it will set you back an honest $750. Uhk. Just another stupid design by GM! I will buy foreign next time! ( Full Answer )
To install a thermostat on a 1987 Nissan 300ZX, remove the two nutsand one bolt on the lower water neck. Slip off the old thermostatand use a gasket sealant to secure the new thermostat.
\n. \n. \nWhen you feel real warm and comfortable! \nGet a humidity meter and be sure you have over 45% and preferably 60% humidity in your house. Boil water in a pot on your stove to get humdity in the air. Leave the bath water in your tub after a bath - it keeps the heat inside and adds humidity…. Yea -you have to clean the tub later. \nThe more humidity - the warmer it feels but too high humidity can cause water on the windows and all kind of crap depending on the construction of your house. Try to get humidity to 45-60.\nAnother diddy- If you have a gas water heater and the electricity fails in a storm or other- fill up your bath tubs with hot water. Let the heat from the hot water keep you from freezing.\n. \nI forgot - as I am a dinosaur - I keep my heat about 74 degree ( Full Answer )

follow the radiator hose that goes to the motor, the thermostat housing is the thing the hose is hooked to and it is bolted to the motor with three bolt i believe. you take the hose off, the housing off and just take the old thermostat out and put the new one in.
You will first need to take out the old thermostat. After ensuringthat you have the right product, insert the new thermostat.
Installing a thermostat on a 1992 Chevrolet Corsica is very easy todo. First, follow the upper radiator hose to the thermostat. Then,you will disconnect the hose and drain it. After the hose isdrained, take off the two bolts holding the thermostat housing inplace. After the bolts are removed, take t…he old thermostat out andreplace it with a new one. ( Full Answer )
The old thermostat will simply lift out. Drop in the newthermostat. Put a new gasket on the thermostat housing. Secure thethermostat housing with the retaining bolts.
\nlocate the casting that contains the thermostat and separate it's cover. the old unit should be observed while it is in place in order that it's replacement is installed right side up. \nany old gasket material that may be stuck on the castings needs to be removed and the seal surfaces trued. …\nfollow the upper radiator hose to the engine and you will locate the casting that the thermostat is housed in.

Depends on the engine really. Most thermostats can be found under the top radiator hose hosing, generally aluminum. I recently changed one on a 1995 Corsica with the 2.2 liter 4-cylinder engine. It was found exactly under the top radiator hose hosing. Three 10mm bolts hold it to the head, unfortunat…ely you have to drain some antifreeze and to do so from the top hose required some ingenuity to lessen the mess you make. A small funnel with a flexible tube attached, about 18 inches long feeding into an empty antifeeze bottle wormed underneath the front of the car where in the cavaity between the engine block and front bulkhead will just fit. Remove the hose by unloosening the clamp. Remove the 3 10mm bolts and gently pry off the hosing as it may be 'glued' in place with gasket seal. The thermostat will be inside the housing and can be removed from the housing. Clean the housing of all residue of sealant. Replace thermostat with a new one and place a gasket on the housing mating surface or smoothly apply gasket sealer to the mating surface and reassemble the housing to the cylinder head. Reattach the hose and clamp tight. Refill engine coolant surge tank or reservoir but do so with the engine running, inside heater set to warmest setting, on 'Heat', with heater fan at highest setting and running. Carefully fill with 50/50 mix antifreeze and check passenger compartment heat level. When it reaches the desired temperature and fill level - you're done. Cap the surge tank and away you go. Keep an eye out for leaks during the process of filling, they would mostly be seen at the sight where you disturbed the upper hose and hosing. ( Full Answer )
Remove the upper radiator hose. At the end of that hose is the radiator, at the other end is the thermostat housing. Remove the thermostat housing and you will find the thermostat. Buy a very good thermostat or you will be doing it all over in about a year. Pay close attention to what side of the th…ermostat is facing so you don't install the new one backwards. Make sure you replace the gasket also, if it does not come with a reusable one. Don't forget to refill your antifreeze. ( Full Answer )
HI,\nI'l give it to you by the book.\nDrain the coolant so it's below the level of tyher thermostat. If you need to, you can remove the top radiator hose from the thermostat housing, of course check the hose and if it's mushy, then change it too, now is also a good time to check the lower radiator h…ose and if it's mushy then drain the coolant all the way and change it too better now than later. Remove the thermostat housing bolts then lift the housing off of the intake manifold. Remove and discard the old gasket. grasp the thermostat and lift it out of the intake manifold. Thoroughly clean both mating surfaces of the thermostat and intake manifold so there is nothing on the surfaces at all. Put the thermostat in with the spring side down. Put a new gasket on the thermostatthen put the thermostat housing back on, install the bolts and tighten evenly. Put the hose back on if needed. Then refill with new coolant. Start the engine and check for leaks and insure the proper amount of coolant has been added. There is one thing to think about, why not think about having it done and flush the cooling system at the same time, it's just a thought. Good luck and don't forget to catch all the fluid as it comes out. Steve H. ( Full Answer )
Remove the water supply hose from the top of your thermostathousing. Remove the thermostat housing retaining bolts. Lift outthe old thermostat and drop in the new thermostat. Reverse theprocess.
First, locate it: put your hand on the upper radiator hose and follow it to the engine. The metal piece the hose is attached to is the thermostat housing. It's held on with two bolts. Take them out, and pull the housing away from the engine.\n. \nYou have a new thermostat and a new gasket--I don't …know why thermostats don't come with gaskets, but they're sold separately. There's a slot in the gasket that runs all the way around the inside of it. Work the gasket around the thermostat until the new thermostat looks like the old one. \n. \nBefore you remove the old thermostat, look at it: there's a pin coming out of the thermostat body. You must install the new thermostat with the pin in the same place. Pull out the old thermostat, press the new one in its place with your fingers, set the thermostat housing back on the engine and tighten the bolts to 25 lb-ft.\n. \nNext, look at the top of the thermostat housing. You'll see two sensors--they've got cables coming out of them--and a bolt with kind of a nipple in the middle of it. That's the bleeder bolt. Loosen it with a 12mm socket. Take off the radiator cap and slowly pour coolant--be sure it's either Honda Genuime or an "all makes all models" coolant--into the radiator until some comes out of the bleeder bolt. Then tighten it and you're done. ( Full Answer )
remove the thermostate housing. It is on the front of the engine and is connected to a hose that goes to the radiator.
Remove the top radiator hose. Remove the water inlet on top of themotor. The thermostat is under the inlet. Replace the thermostattaking care not to place the new on in upside down. Clean off oldgasket material from the inlet, install a new gasket and reinstallthe inlet and hose.
The easiest way is to follow that specific manufacturer's instructions. If you don't have them, try searching their web site online, or calling their tech support number for a copy of the instructions..

To install a thermostat: The engine should be cool. 1. Put down an appropriate pan to catch leaking coolant. 2. Follow the upper radiator hose to the water outlet. That is usually where the thermostat is. 3. Remove the bolts that hold the water outlet in place. The thermostat will be under or inside… it. 4. Remove the old thermostat. 5. Clean any sealant or rust away from both mating surfaces. 6. Place new thermostat with appropriate gasket in the housing. Use sealant as necessary. 7. Put the water outlet back on and tighten the bolts. 8. Replace any coolant that was spilled or refill the radiator. 9. Check for coolant leaks. ( Full Answer )
The thermostat is located under the thermostat housing at the end of the upper radiator hose engine side .you will need to remove the hose then the housing hopeing al the while you do not break the housing upon reinstall or the bolts either removing or reinstalling them ,also you will need to scrape… the old gasket off and use a new to put it back together .But all this after draianing the coolant down below that point of the engine while the engine is cool.Don't work on hot engine.

Remove engine cover to gain access. Remove two bolts that hold housing to manifold on the front of the engine. Coolant will leak out when the housing on the end of the top radiator hose is lifted off manifold. Wipe area clean with a rag, make sure the old o ring is not stuck on manifold. Install new… o ring and thermostat making sure thermostat is facing the right way, should be marked on one side RAD which means towards radiator or the front of the car. Arched part of thermostat is up and spring side down towards the engine. Tighten two bolts evenly to secure housing to manifold carefully so as not to crack it. Fill antifreeze 50/50 antifreeze to water ratio and start engine check for leaks, tighten bolts if needed. Re-install engine cover. Check antifreeze levels when engine cools just to be sure and plastic reservoir should be half full with antifreeze. ( Full Answer )
They typically just snap on. Hold the cover horizontally and mate the top 2 protrusions (if they aren`t broken off) with the indentations on the stat. Then close the cover and snap the bottom closed. This is just a guideline since you don`t provide the make & model # of your stat.
If your home heating/cooling system is not functioning properly and the problem is not with the system then it must be the stat. That is unlikely unless it has been smacked with something and damaged. Would need some more info such as symptoms and why you suspect the stat to be of more help.
take off the bolts to the old one dont drop in engine place some gasket sealer on the new one and replace dont over tighten the bolts.
The temperature at which you are comfortable. If your question involves money-saving, then contact your local power company to determine the best setting.
follow the top hose to the out let on top of the motor..pull the hose off take out both bolts put new gasket on after replace goose neck hook hose up check for leakes your done
if a 4 cyc, it probably has a (silver) cap on the top of the engine where the return hose goes back to the radiator. thermostat is under the cap.
pull off the cover and unscrew the wires. twist red and white together. if it turns on, your furnace still works and your thermostat is bad(if it didnt work previously)
For tools You will need a ratchet with a 12mm socket and a short extension, a pair of channel locks or pliers, a flat screw driver, and a pan to catch the radiator fluid. For parts you will need a thermostat housing ($85.00 at the dealer, abour $55.00 plus shipping on line. and a new gasket (this i…s an o-ring, and a great inprovement over the paper gasket and sealer that I am used to dealing with). and a little 50-50 antifreeze mixture to replace what will be lost. This should only take about 15 minutes for the average Joe. At the top of the radiator on the passenger side you will see a short radiator hose connecting the radiator to the thermostat housing. If this is the first time that the thermostat has been changed the housing will be plastic. The replacement will be cast aluminum (The plastic ones have been known to break). You can drain some fluid from the system through the plug located under the bottom radiator hose. Or just catch it as best you can when you remove the radiator hose. Remove the radiator hose by using the channel locks or pliers to expand the clamps and move the past the hose beads on the radiator connection and the thermostat housing. the hoses might be stuck to the plastic connections so carefully use the screwdriver to free the hosees. There will be a small bypass hose connected to the thermostat housing. this will be easier to remove after the housing is free from the engine. The thermostat housing is held in place by two bolts. you will need the 12mm socket to remove them. The one at the top is visable and easy to reach. The second one is on the opposite side and not visible but easialy reached with the short extension. Free the thermostat housing from the engine and remove the snall bypass hose in the same manner that the radiator hoses were removed. The thermostate in part of the housing and to my knowlege not replceable. Be sure that the old o ring is removed before installing the new o-ring and housing. Reassemble in reverse order and your done. Don't forget to top off the antifreeze. ( Full Answer )
Drain the radiator, remove the two bolts on the upper hose (intake manifold) side and remove the thermostat. Install in reverse order and don't forget to burp the system, fill the radiator system and keep squeezing the hose to get the air out otherwise you will overheat.
Exactly the same as you would in a regular house. Generally the system is no different.
Disconnect the battery and partially drain the radiator. Remove the two bolts that hold the water neck to the intake manifold and remove the water neck. Pull out the thermostat and replace. Make sure big side is down. Clean gasket surface and replace gasket. Use a thin layer of silicone gasket seale…r if you want to, but it isn't necessary if both gasket surfaces are smooth. Assembly is the reverse of dis-assembly. ( Full Answer )
