I was on a job recently in Coupeville when I came across a basement pellet stove thermostat that was not professionally installed. In fact, it was merely dangling on an adjacent window.
Correctly installing thermostats and related electrical infrastructure can require a lot of time, skill and patience. If you decide to take on such a project, make sure you really know what you are doing. While there are lots of great tips on do-it-yourself electrical wiring, it can be dangerous if you are not prepared and experienced.
For those who want to learn more about thermostat installation, in particular, take a look at the video below. Hope it helps!
