Why the builder put the thermostat in the middle of a wall is beyond me. I've always been annoyed by the placement (and by the fact that it's an old school, non-programmable model).
I wonder how much it would cost to move the thermostat over a few feet. I'm not interested in a DIY job. While I have someone in to move the thing, I might as well upgrade the thermostat to a programmable model, right? Anyone have any experience with this? Is it exorbitantly expensive?
