Where should a thermostat (programmable or otherwise) be located in your house? Can it be near a cold air intake? Is it worth having a thermostat moved if it is in a bad spot? Follow

To work properly and efficiently, thermostats should be located away from any sources of cold or heat. Install your unit on an interior wall, away from heating or cooling vents and other sources of heat or drafts (doorways, windows, A/C vents, radiators/heating vents, skylights, direct sunlight, or bright lamps). It is worth moving a thermostat if it's in a bad spot, especially if you're doing any renovations
