Why Do Thermostats Exist?
Firstly, it is important to understand why most homes have thermostats and why you may or may not want one in your home.

However, some people prefer to have their walls clear, and a thermostat can block a homeowner’s aesthetic. That is why some homeowners look for ways to help their furnace run without a thermostat.

Continue reading to learn about two ways that we can help you set up your furnace without needing a thermostat.
Two Ways To Set Up Your Furnace Without A Thermostat
The first way that you can set up your furnace without needing to have a thermostat installed, is to wire nut the white and red wires together. This will cause the furnace to run without a thermostat. The second way to avoid using a thermostat is to get a piece of equipment that looks like a resistor with two wires that you can put on your furnace. However, with this option, the temperature will always be between 62 and 65 degrees, and cannot be changed outside of that range.
If you are planning to set up your furnace with one of the previously mentioned methods without a thermostat, we at Genuine Comfort want to give you a quick warning. Sometimes, when people move around the wires or put the wires in the wrong spots, they can short out the circuit board. Make sure to contact a professional in order to protect your equipment and get the most effective heating and cooling results.
