    Moving Wired Thermostat

    Heating Engineers

    Currently my Wired thermostat is located stupidly out my my lobby which has a door I keep closed for various reasons. I would like my thermostat to be moved somewhere move central in my home but mu Landlords engineer said wired thermostats cant be moved. Surely there must be a way to do this or can i change to wireless?

    "The thermostat should ideally be placed in a hallway or a cold room. It is the signal to tell the boiler that the house is at it’s desired temperature. If it’s moved to a different location, you must make sure the radiator in that “zone” or “area” is not fitted with a TRV as they counter act each other."

    "To move a wired thermostat you would have to be able to run new cable to the preferred location.

    Get a wireless hive installed, the receiver is wired next to the boiler and you can place the stat anywhere you want."

    Of course you can move this thermostat! First time I've heard something like this. They just don’t want to do it.
    Alternatively you could get a wireless thermostat but some of them (Nest) require stands with power supply or cable from the receiver."
