Secondary Thermostat?

Hi, My programmable thermostat in the living room stopped working. I never liked it in there because of the extreme sun exposure. There is a manual thermostat on the second floor (split level) which I've never tried in 10 years living here. If it can turn on furnace, would it cause a possible problem even if the prog. stat is turned off with no batteries installed? It may sound like an obvious question, but I can't afford anymore expensive problems with this house!

Note: I did purchase a new programmable, but it's going back because the face place won't separate from the base. Crazy.

Welcome to the forums.

You have two thermostats that both control the heat...... why ?

Two thermostats connected together to both control the same thing shouldn't hurt each other.
Unfortunately they will fight each other because if one is on.... the other one has no control.
