    This is great advice… however, if you’re stuck with your thermostat location next to a big office printer, like in our office, there may be no way around it. We decided not to spend another thousand on an HVAC contractor to come in and re-wire to a new spot. Instead we bought a wireless thermostat and hung the receiver in a better location. This is the one we got…. http://www.venstaroutlet.com/venstar-thermostats/venstar-residential-thermostats/venstar-T1100RF-REC-wireless-thermostat-combo works great, was easy to install and now we’re not freezing our butts off year round.
