    I bought this thermostat:

    And found this wiring diagram here on BYC:

    When I strip and split the cords, I'll end up with two wires from each power cord. Using the power cord (slots 3 and 4) as an example, how do I know which piece of my power cord goes into slot 3 and which one goes into slot 4? Does it matter?

    I hope this makes sense, because DH and I don't know much about electrical wiring!
