I don’t know who designed this home however it was a very stupid method to put the thermostat right over the dishwasher, but the heat from the dishwasher gives the thermostat false reading plus makes it think it is much warmer in the home than it legitimately is whenever the dishwasher is running, however in the Winter time we freeze because the gas furnace won’t kick on for 2 hours while the dishes are being washed.
In the Summer we freeze again because the air conditioner component won’t turn off while the dishes are being washed.
The thermostat is 1 of those legitimately old 1 that has a dial to turn plus set the temperature on plus it is wired into the wall. I know our Heating plus A/C plan is not that super old however the thermostat definitely is. I bet the thermostat was in the kitchen before this home even had a dishwasher plus that’s the reason for the bad layout. I hesitated to call a heating plus air guy to come plus tranathletic interest the thermostat because I assumed it would be a lot of work plus would require ripping wires out of the walls however enough was enough; When the professional came out he said that the old thermostat could simply be covered with a plate cover plus he could install a modern wireless thermostat anywhere in the home I want. What a relief. The modern thermostat cost me under $100 plus now it is placed in the hallway, away from the dishwasher, plus I legitimately wish I had done this earlier instead of waiting so long.
