Similarly, what is the blue wire on a thermostat?
The blue wire, or C-wire, is known as the common wire. It's there to provide power to the thermostat. Older thermostats usually don't have a C-wire because they either don't need power or, if they do, they get it from a battery.
Similarly, where does the C wire connect on furnace? Since that wire is clearly Y, the other wire in the cable going to the condenser (the white wire, since it's a two-wire cable) must be your C wire, and you can connect the blue wire in the thermostat cable there (after turning the power to the furnace off and stripping the wire end back, of course).
In this regard, does Nest require C wire?
In most cases, a Nest Thermostat can work without a common wire. Without a common wire it charges its internal battery using power from the heating and cooling wires. With some HVAC systems, such as micro-controller-based systems and certain gas valves, will require a C-wire to work with Nest Learning Thermostat.
What does a blue wire mean?
Blue and yellow Yellow and blue electrical wires are also used to carry power but are not for wiring the outlets for common plug-in electrical devices. These colors are used for the live wire pulled through conduit. You'll use blue mainly as a traveler for a three-way or four-way switch.
