Preparation
The Customer Care Center (CCC) is your single point of contact for
information about your Wiser Air. Qualified personnel are available to answer your
customer service and technical support questions.

1. Ensure Wiser Air is suitable for the environment. Check the voltage compatibility. A thick wire (110V or 220V) is not compatible with Wiser Air, two thin
wires (24V) are needed. Acceptable wire gauge for use with Wiser Air is solid 16 to
24 AWG (1.31 to 0.205mm²).
2. Disconnect power to the air conditioning and/or heating system.
3. Use a properly isolated voltage sensing device to confirm power is off.
4. Wiring must conform to all building codes, regulations, and ordinances as required
by local and national code and regulation authorities.
5. Ensure all electrical loads (air conditioners, heating elements, etc.) that will be
controlled by Wiser Air are connected to appropriate fuses to prevent overload.
Installation Procedure
WARNING
WARNING MERCURY HAZARD
• If this is a new installation, install Wiser Air five feet above the floor surface in
accordance with applicable building codes.
• Install Wiser Air in areas with frequent occupancy and airflow.
• Avoid installing Wiser Air in locations near heating/cooling devices.
• Avoid installing Wiser Air in areas with direct sunlight. The screen may become
unreadable due to direct sunlight or reflection from windows, and temperature
regulation may be affected.
• Never install Wiser Air behind doors, near corners, near air vents, or in areas with
high dust concentration.
If replacing an existing thermostat that uses a sealed tube of mercury, do not
dispose of the tube in the trash. Contact local waste management authorities for
infomation on the safe disposal or recycling of the mercury.
Mounting
1. Keep the front of Wiser Air separate from the back plate before mounting.
2. Align the Wiser Air back plate against a wall using a level and mark the placement
of the mounting holes.
3. Drill holes and install wall anchors at the marked locations. If a stud is present no
anchors are necessary. Always check for wires and pipes before drilling.

Location
Failure to safely dispose of the mercury can result in exposure
leading to serious health damage.
Optional trim plate mounting
If you are replacing an existing thermostat you have the option of using the provided
Wiser Air trim plate. If the hole left by the removal of the existing unit is larger than the
back plate of the Wiser Air thermostat, use the optional trim plate. Run the wires and
anchor the mounting screws through it while attaching the back plate to the wall
(Fig. 2). Make sure to attach the trim plate with the central hole oriented upwards.

TIP: Before proceeding further determine if you require the optional trim plate.
1. Disconnect power to the HVAC system by turning off the breaker.
TIP: Before proceeding further check if you require a wire extender
(see Appendix).
2. Remove the existing thermostat’s panel from the wall without disconnecting the
wiring.
4. Disconnect the wiring of the existing thermostat and remove the back plate.
3. Take a picture of the wiring of the terminal connections. If necessary label the
wires to prevent confusion (Fig. 1).
5. Pull the wires 6in (15cm) out of the wall if they are not already pulled out.
6. Insert the wires through the central hole in Wiser Air back plate.
7. If required, strip each wire 0.25in (0.6cm) from the end (does not apply to
replacing pre-existing units).
8. Connect the wiring to the Wiser Air back plate, matching the terminal connections
to those in the photograph of the existing thermostat’s wiring or according to the
wiring requirements of your HVAC system.

10.Attach the Wiser Air back plate to the wall using the provided screws in the
mounting holes in the top and bottom (Fig. 2).
This section describes the procedure for connecting the wiring to the back plate.
Figure 4 shows the Wiser Air backplate configuration.
11.Attach the front of Wiser Air to the back plate, making sure that the front is oriented
correctly so that the terminal pins on the front panel match the pins on the back
plate. Do not use excessive force on the Wiser Air as this can damage the terminal
pins (Fig. 3).
When replacing an older thermostat, refer to the photograph of the original wiring
taken in Step 3 of the installation procedure to connect the wiring to the correct terminals. See the caution below.
For a new installation, consult the documentation for your HVAC system to determine
the correct wiring terminal connections. Match the wiring labels to the terminal labels.
For more information or assistance in determining the correct wiring for your HVAC
system, see the HVAC wiring help sections on the Wiser Air website
(www.wiserhome.com/support) or contact Wiser Air Product Support.
