Most Residential Heating/Cooling Thermostats are for the five wire system.. RH, RC, W, Y, G,.

RH is the heating feed
RC is the cooling feed
W energizes the heating
Y energizes the contactor on you ac
G energizes the blower relay

Note if you also have W2, and Y2, it is a two stage stat, no need to use them if you only have a single stage system..

If using the five wires, the wires on RH, and RC, will go on R on the Furnace

If using only 4 wires, RH and RC need to be jumpered at the stat.. Keep in mind you can only do this if your furnace has R W Y G on board, Do not do this if using a seperate fan relay for your a/c..
