    Our house has the main central heating thermostat in the sitting room. We have just had a log burner installed in that room meaning it heats up very quickly. However this also means that the thermostat reaches temperature before the rest of the house is heated, leaving the upstairs cold.

    Without moving the thermostat are there any ways to resolve this, such as a separate wireless thermostat (not sure if this works with an already wired in thermostat)?

    Thanks

    Thanks. Ok so we need to remove the existing one before using a wireless one? We can't use two different thermostats, is that right? Just want to be sure.

    Completely remove existing and replace with wireless stat and receiver, you only need one.
