Moving a thermostat to a different room?
I would like to move the electronic thermostat from the living room to the basement.
The reason why this is so is because the living room is always warm and I need to continuously go upstairs from the basement and set the thermostat so that the basement is always kept warm. The vents in the living room are always closed and the heat that goes on is distributed to the rooms and the basement.
By moving the thermostat in the basement the thermostat will be measuring and working with the basement temperature instead of the living room temperature. I live in the basement most of the time and want the heating system to go on and off only when the temperature in the basement is right for me. The living room is always warm and having it there is unpractical.
I would like to know if anyone has done this before, and what kind of costs are there involved when moving one in a house one level lower (to the basement).
