Thermostat that does not require a "C" wire. Programable and wi-fi if such an animal exists

Thermostat not requiring a c wire. Programable and wi-if if such a thing exists. I have no "c" wire and don't have the cash to hire an electrician to come in and wire for me.

I Googled "thermostat c wire" and found a couple of sites that mention two thermostats that don't require a "c" wire - Ecobee 3 and Sensi.  Both are high end, programmable, WiFi connected 'stats.  I haven't used either product so I can't make a recommendation but it seems, beyond running a new cable, there are options for you.

Hello Toledo, and welcome to the community!

I too don't have a "C wire", but I installed the ecobee 3 wireless thermostat with no problems. The ecobee 3 residential thermostats can be installed without the C-wire--the ecobee3 package contains a Power Extender Kit (PEK) in the box which is required for installation when a C-wire is not available on your current thermostat.
