How many amps does a thermostat use?

The thermostat wire isn't sized for carrying capacity. The code requires the circuit to be Class 2, 30 volts and 100 VA maximum, with no more than 4 Amps. Most of the capacity may be required for the relays in the heating, ventilating, and air conditioning unit.
