1.2.16 Relocate thermostats to appropriate areas

1.2.16 Relocate thermostats to appropriate areas   Description To operate properly, a thermostat must be located on an interior wall away from direct sunlight, drafts, doorways, skylights, and windows. It should be located where natural room air currents (warm air rising, cool air sinking) occur. Furniture will block natural air movement, so [...]
