I have an older furnace and am looking to add a c wire for a smart thermostat. Currently behind my thermostat I have red/black wire, however, there are 3 additional wires that are not connected.
At the furnace the red/black are connected (as shown below) and the 3 additional wires are free.
From what I understand the C wire is 24 volt common. I have metered the furnace running/not running and found a post transformer wire that is 24 volt constant. Can I simply connect one of the spare wires to this terminal or is there potential for too much of a current draw blowing the transformer?
Red coil wire is from thermostat. 24v constant is the bottom right black wire (this is where I want to connect the C wire to)
