For accurate temperature control and comfort, correct
location is very important. On new installations, the
guidelines listed below should be followed as closely as
possible. When replacing an old thermostat, install the
new one in the same location unless these conditions
1. Locate the thermostat on an inside wall about five
feet above the floor, where it is easy to install and
adjust. It should be in a room that is used often, such
as a family room.
2. Do not install it where there are unusual heating
conditions, such as direct sunlight, close to a lamp,
radio, television, radiator, register, near a fireplace, or
other heat producing appliance. Also, check for hot
water pipes within the wall, or a stove on the other
side of the wall.
