Need advice on wiring new thermostat

Got a new single stage thermostat. The new thermostat is Rc Rh C W Y G O B my old one is wired like this.
White wire: W1
Blue wire: W2
Green wire: G
Red wire: Rc jumped to Rh
Yellow wire: Y1
I have gas furnace and electric heat. I know this won't run both just want the gas furnace to work and air conditioner. Thanks the thermostat is a white Rodgers.

Looks like your new stat is for a heat pump. You can probably get this to work but you will have to use the blue wire as common (C) in the new stat. Then remove blue wire in furnace and move it to the common side of the transformer.
