BALTIMORE (WJZ) – Don’t place lamps or television sets near an air conditioning thermostat.

Mary Bubala reports the thermostat senses heat from these appliances.

That can cause the air conditioner to run longer than necessary, which wastes money and energy.

    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…. works great, was easy to install and now we’re not freezing our butts off year round.
