Customer Question

I'd like to install two thermostat in a house. What would you recommend
JA: Just to clarify, do you think this is a larger HVAC problem, or something specific to the thermostat?
Customer: Specific to the thermostat. Here's my problem. I have tenants living upstairs and downstairs. The thermostat is downstairs. I want the upstairs tenants to be able to turn the furnace on from their unit when it's not running.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If I can install a wireless yes if not will have the job done by professional
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: No that's about it. Would like that both upstairs and downstairs tenants can start the furnace when they are cold.
