Q: My thermostat was installed right smack dab in the middle of my living room wall. On top of the fact that it’s ugly, it’s exactly where I want to hang one of a pair of paintings. I would like to move it to a less obtrusive spot. Is that a DIY possibility? A possibility at all? -Sent by NaturalMama

Editor: Great question! Thermostats often seem to be installed in the stupidest, most problematic spot possible. Handy readers, is it possible to move a thermostat?
