When you absolutely need to connect a thermostat to an old fixed location, but the current wiring situation complicates the repair (or makes it too expensive), worry know more. We have a fix for that! In fact, we have several options.
Wireless Thermostat and Receiver Kits are available to help manage heating and cooling systems from anywhere in the house regardless of the current wiring issues. These control modules offer everything needed to relocate or upgrade with a thermostat without running new wires. And, it’s as simple as removing the old thermostat and replacing it with a wireless receiver!
The receiver is easy to install and is wired just like a standard 24VAC thermostat. The simplest solution is to just connect the unit to the old thermostat location. It can be wired in the furnace closet, attic or basement because the thermostat will communicate wirelessly. The temperature sensor is located on the thermostat, so place the thermostat anywhere the customer wants to control the temperature.
The thermostat can be placed in any location throughout your home — mounted to your wall or set on a shelf using an easel stand – anywhere from 100 up to 500 feet from the receiver depending on the model you choose. Transmitted radio signals from the thermostat to the receiver will be sent.
Most Wireless Thermostat Kits come with these options and features but still, be sure you choose the right model for your application:
- Manual or auto changeover
- Programmable or non-programmable
- Adjustable heating and cooling setpoints
- Short cycle protection
- Eliminates costly installation of wiring a thermostat
- Up to 3H/2C
- Gas or electric or heat pump
