I've read many posts on this, and believe I know what to do, but want to make sure. My furnace (a Lennox G14 Series) does not have a C terminal which needs to be connected to the C terminal in my new wifi thermostat. In the attached picture of the terminal strip in the furnace, the red wire on the T terminal and the white wire on the Y terminal go to the air conditioner. The other 4 wires go to the thermostat. I've measure across the R and T terminals and get 28vac. Based on this I believe I can use the T terminal for the C connection...is that right?

Eventually I'll run a 5 wire cable but for now I plan on stealing the green wire to make the C connection if I can use the T terminal.

UPDATE: First time using this forum. Sorry about my clunkiness. Anyway, I've added the wiring diagram from inside the furnace.

Note: the solution here is the querent's -- I'm simply writing it up in a CW answer to get this off our plate as the querent has not returned to migrate it from his question-edits to an answer himself.


SOLVED (01/04/15): I decided that the T terminal was exactly what I needed so gave it a try and everything is working perfectly. I also pulled in some 18-5 thermostat wire. Here is my setup, in case it might help someone else:

Furnace: Lennox G14Q3-60-13

Thermostat: Honeywell RTH6500WF

I've attached pictures of my connections.
