    Thermostate 24v: gas valve 20v?

    I have just installed a thermostate with a rating of 24v.
    Will it work OK with a gas value rated 20v?

    Thank, Dallas

    I wasn't aware of 20v gas valves.

    not for nothin

    I am by no means a heating expert, but isn't a thermostat just a switch, like a lightswitch. So it would have a voltage rating, but would not affect the voltage passing through it. So, as long as the voltage and amperage capacity of the thermostat are not exceeded, I would say it should work fine., oops, I realized someone already answred,...but arent I smart

    valves were listed as 20 volt valves years ago and may still be around on some equipment. They work just fine with 24 volts and the thermostat is just a switch so it is not a problem. Just make sure you match the anticipator on the thermostat to the amperage draw of the gas valve.
