There’s so much in the HVAC industry that is counter intuitive if you haven’t spent any time working with this kind of machinery, and the thermostat is no different. People assume (and you cannot really blame them) that if you set an air conditioner lower, the machine will work harder and faster, but the truth is that is will just run longer to reach the desired temperature. Not what you would assume, but reasonable and understandable after an explanation. Thermostat location is no different.
It’s just a control box like your TV remote. Who cares where I put it? Actually, it is extremely important where you put it, namely because the thermostat is also a thermometer sensing the temperature in the air. If the thermostat is installed in a poor location, you will experience numerous hot and cold spots in your home.
