Would two thermostats be possible if a master control switch was in place. For example I leave one end of the house, throw the control switch, and set the thermostat at the other end of the house. (Living room is freezing while bedroom is warm.)

  • There are smart thermostats (Like the Ecobee) that have motion detection and remote sensors that do this automatically. That said, you could use simple switches to do it. Do you just want a switch to turn each thermostat on or off? Is it ok if both thermostats are "on" at the same time? – JPhi1618 Mar 15 '19 at 20:45
  • @Jerry_Contrary I read it as "thermostat is in the living room, so I want to turn it off when I leave because the bedroom is already warm". Perhaps Mike could clarify tho. – JPhi1618 Mar 15 '19 at 20:53
  • @jphi1618 I guess more clarification is needed. – Jerry_Contrary Mar 15 '19 at 20:55
  • This is an XY question but you've made clear what both the X and Y are, so it should be answerable. – Harper - Reinstate Monica Mar 15 '19 at 20:57
  • Have you tried having your ductwork balanced properly? – ThreePhaseEel Mar 16 '19 at 1:20

Yes it's possible and very easy with simple thermostats. For example twp non powered thermostats could be controlled in such a way with a 3 way switch. R from the furnace goes to the common terminal and the switched terminals go to the corresponding are terminal on each thermostat.
