Bright idea: reusing a thermostat
When the repairmen put in the new furnace, they also replaced the thermostat, leaving us the old one.
This particular thermostat, which we'd put in a couple of years ago, had a few bells and whistles ... including a battery-operated thermometer.
So rather than throw it in the garage sale pile, I moved it upstairs. (Where it it currently 71 degrees). I may move it around, just to see how well the furnace is doing.
