Question about Heating & Cooling
Hang a small thermometer next to the thermostat to see how much it is off by. You did not mention what kind of thermostat you have been installing. Check in the instruction manual to see if it has a heat anticipator. Some thermostats have a small winding (heater) inside it that will anticipate the temperature raise and turn off the heater a few degrees before set poit. If this was not set, this would be your problem. If it is factory set, sometimes they come with a small resistor that must be installed in the wiring to help with the anticipator. If you find that the thermostat is still way off, yes you may need to relocate it. Kitchens can fool thermostats by the heat from the stove and refrigerator. You can either relocate the thermostat by changing the location of the wires and base or install a wireless unit that is easily mounted where you want without running wires.
