I am in the market for a Ring doorbell and was googling on how to find a doorbell transformer. I believe I have found it - but it’s attached to the furnace switch.
The wires connected to the transformer are skinny and sticking out from the wall (a sign that this could be the doorbell transformer). But to be on the safe side I did the following tests: Remove one wire from the transformer and test the existing doorbell and the furnace - when I turned ON the furnace switch the furnace light STILL turns on but when I pressed the doorbell button the doorbell stayed silent. I put the wire back onto the transformer, and the doorbell was ringing again.
The transformer shows 5va- 10v so this is way underpowered - How do I replace this transformer with this setup? Or would the Ring bypass option work?
