Unexpected wiring found on existing thermostat
Model Number: Trane XE80 Brand: -other- Age: 5 - 10 years
I am replacing my thermostat. I've attached a photo of the existing wiring and new wiring.
1. Why is the existing thermostat wired backwards (R --> W and W --> R)?
2. Why is G (fan) controlled by a relay and switch located in the basement rather than the thermostat? Is it for mechanical 2-wire thermostats?
3. Is the new wiring reasonable?
R --> R
W --> W
G --> G
C --> C
Thanks for any help!
