Installing a new thermostat can be intimidating. But have no fear! Honeywell has provided an easy step-by-step guide to install your new Lyric™ Thermostat. I preferred using the Lyric™ app to install my new thermostat.
- The Lyric Thermostat will work with common 24-volt systems:
- Single Stage Heating and Cooling
- Multistage Heating and Cooling
- Heating Only or Cooling Only
- Furnace (Warm Air)
- Central Air Conditioning
- Heat Pump without Auxiliary Heat
- Heat Pump with Auxiliary Heat (Including Dual Fuel)
- Hot Water
- Steam or Gravity
- Gas Fireplaces (24 Volts)
- Does NOT work with electric baseboard heating (120/240V)
First, gather all tool required to complete the installation.
Next, turn off the breaker to your thermostat and air conditioner/heat pump by turning off the specific breaker(s) in your home’s electric panel and verify the system is off.
Remove the existing thermostat’s faceplate to expose the wiring. Do NOT remove any wires at this point.
Take a picture of the existing wiring. So you can refer to this when installing the Lyric™ thermostat. The Lyric™ app allows you to select and organize by color the existing wiring and clearly shows where your wires will go when installing the Lyric™ thermostat.
Disconnect all wiring from the old thermostat making sure the wires do not slip back into the wall.
Mark the desired hole locations with a ball point pen. Then using a 7/32″ drill bit, drill holes for the anchors. Then place the anchors into the drilled holes until they are flush with the wall.
If desired, attached the Lyric™ thermostat back plate to the optional wall plate included with your new thermostat. If you do not want to use the optional wall plate, proceed to bundle the wiring together and pass the wires through the clear rubber holder on the back plate.
Now using the Lyric™ app you will see a picture of the thermostat back plate with the wires shown exactly where the belong on the Lyric™ thermostat. Place the wires into the corresponding terminals. The wires are to be pressed into the terminal until the wire can not be removed without using a ball point pen to depress the release button.
All the wiring is installed and has been checked. Place the provided screw into the top hole of the backplate and screw it into the top anchor you installed. Do not tighten the screw completely. This will prevent you from being able to level your new thermostat. Repeat the same process with the bottom screw. You will notice Honeywell has built-in a level on the Lyric™ back plate just above the bottom screw hole. Adjust the back plate until the bubble inside the level is between the two centerlines. Once the backplate is level, hold the back plate against the wall and completely tighten the bottom screw to secure the leveled position. Now tighten the top screw and the backplate installation is complete.
Now simply snap the Lyric™ thermostat front plate into place and turn the breaker and power back on. Once power has been restored; your new thermostat will turn itself on. It could take up to three minutes for the thermostat to completely turn on and be ready to program.
Installation is complete! Log into the Lyric™ app and connect and configure the thermostat by following the very simple steps and before you know it you will be in full control your comfort with your phone. You can learn more at the Lyric™ site, or check out this video.
You can even use Siri to adjust your thermostat! I was really blown away with all the features the app and thermostat has.
Compatibility with Apple® HomeKit™ and Samsung® SmartThings™ lets you control a wide range of connected products ranging from lights to garage doors.
Be sure to read the material provided and explore the Lyric™ app regarding your new thermostat. There are many features and benefits provided by using the Lyric™ Thermostat. You can now have more control of your home!
