New thermostat followup!
 
Hi again,

Thanks for all the helpful suggestions regarding my post last week about my new thermostat installation.

As many of you pointed out, the wires were an eyesore, and in danger of touching:

Finally had some spare time tonight, so I snipped the wires, stripped them fresh, and re-wired it. I had a scary moment where I almost dropped it down inside the wall (!), but I managed to hook it up. How did I do?

cotton balls,loosen the stat and slip some masking tape then lock it down with what you stuff not a major but in the dead of the winter might feel the draft if you put the nose upp there.....so that will run the stat over your setting ...
