Moving Line Voltage Thermostat


I have an issue. I called electrical company, 2 electricians came by, they couldn't figure out how to move the thermostat without making a lot of damage, once they saw the set up, they said its going to run you at least 450$, originally was suppose to be 150$

So I told them, ok I will have to give it some thought and they left.

Another solution is to convert the boiler to 24v, but accordion to them, that's going to be as expensive.

Any ideas?

Moving Line Voltage Thermostat

Ayuh,... Not sure what your asking, 'n your details a sketchy,...

Whereever you want to install a T-stat, a wire must be run...
Regadless the voltage used, the wire still has to be put in place...

Just how destructive that gets, depends on where you want the T-stat, 'n where the controlled appliance is...
