  2. Turn off the power: Locate your circuit breaker panel and turn off the power to the HVAC system to ensure your safety during the installation.

  4. Mount the ecobee thermostat: Attach the included mounting plate to the wall using the provided screws. Ensure it is level. If needed, use a level to make sure the plate is straight.
  5. Connect the wiring: Take the wires from your HVAC system and connect them to the corresponding terminals on the ecobee thermostat. This is where the labels you noted down earlier will come in handy. Use wire cutters and strippers to prepare the wires if necessary.
  6. Attach the ecobee thermostat: Gently push the ecobee thermostat onto the mounting plate until it snaps into place.
  7. Restore power: Go back to your circuit breaker panel and turn on the power to your HVAC system.
  8. Follow the on-screen instructions: The ecobee thermostat will guide you through the initial setup process. Follow the on-screen instructions to connect it to your Wi-Fi network, set your preferences, and complete the configuration.
  9. Install additional sensors (optional): If you have purchased additional ecobee remote sensors, you can now install them in different rooms. The instructions for sensor installation will be provided with the product.
  10. Test the thermostat: Once everything is set up, test the ecobee thermostat by adjusting the temperature settings and verifying that it properly controls your HVAC system.

Remember, these are general instructions, and it’s essential to consult the specific installation manual that comes with your ecobee thermostat for detailed instructions and any specific requirements. If you’re uncomfortable with the installation process, it’s always a good idea to consult a professional HVAC technician for assistance.
