Weil Mcclain cga gold + Nest
The temperature went down yesterday so I started thinking to turn on my heat. I purchased the apartment 2 months ago in small walkup building. I noticed that each unit has his own boiler WeilMcclain cga gold. Also my unit has Honeywell t87 with mercury. In the wall I see only 2 wires (black and white) I wanted to install Nest but I realized that I need "c wire" so I put some simple programmerable thermostat that runs on bateries.
First of all I would like to start the heat but Im not sure can I simple turn on the heat on thermostat or I have to go to the basement and turn on something before I turn on thermostat? Please note that Im foreigner that has never dealt with gas, boilers and thermostat.
Once Im sure that everything is working seamlessly I would like to install the Nest. Probably I can plug in the wire from ac 24v transformer into the C
It would be great if someone can tell me how to run the heat. Some tips on Nest wiring are welcome as well
Thank you very much
