    Talking Fire place as a heat source

    Does anyone know what the distance from a fireplace a thermostat should be. The condo today has a thermostat going to the fireplace as the only heat source for the living room and kitchen. I have told them before that the fireplace has to have a blower or fan in order to be considered a heat source for the room. The thermostat is in a poor location, it was 1' from the window and 3' from the fireplace. What do ya think

    T'stats should be 5 Ft. above floors, away from wide temp. swings such as fireplaces, windows, TV sets, door entrances, etc. and should not be located on exterior walls.

    Keep the fire in the fireplace.
