Thermostat height


I am in the middle of removing old wallpaper in the living room and getting ready to paper again but with a wainscoat this time. The wife would like the thermostat for the boiler lowered on the wall due to a mirror she may want to hang The thermostat is presently centered at 4' 7" but the instructions that came with the new one said put at 5 feet.

Can I assume that if I lower the height a little I just might have to compensate my settings lower to keep the average temperature in the room the same as now? I personally would like to keep it where it is height wise and it will not be moved any to the left or right

Should not make that big of a difference. New electronic tstats are accurate to 1 degF anyway. Check the programming and set it for hot water heat. By default it is usually set for forced air gas heat.

You can lower it some, and not really notice any change in room temps.
ADA is 44"
