HI. I have a small issue with the positioning of the room stat in this house.the stat is in the hall which is south facing, so consequently the hall being only 4 ft wide gets warmed up very quick when the sun is on it.(most of the day). so the thermostat senses this and turns off all the heating. which is fine in the hall. meanwhile the rest of the house, in particular the upstairs bathroom and back bedroom are, lets say a little cold!. so, any suggestions please?

Depending on how your system is wired the receiver can either be installed where the existing stat is located or adjacent to the boiler. If you can install a light switch then installing a wireless thermostat isn't much more difficult (three or four wires instead of two)
