My mother in Law lives in an assisted living facility and her heat
(and A/C) is provided by two DLII wall units.
We have had nothing but trouble regulating the heat. I know these
unit come either with a dial thermostat built-in or with a wall
My MIL has the built in thermostat. It is very difficult to set for a
comfortable setting. You turn it either from blue to red for colder
Does anyone here know what is involved with changing it over to a wall
thermostat (or even if it is possible).
Also, I have not been able to find a manual for this online. Any links
to one would be appreicated.
Finally, if I hire a professional to do the wall thermostat install,
is there any specific quals I should keep my eye out for?
Thanks in advance.

Anything is possible. The easiest way is to go to the manager of the
assisted living facility. Tell them your temperature problem and see
if they will resolve it. If not, write to someone higher up for help.
You'll need a model and serial number and if you have that you can
look for it yourself.
My guess would be if you could even find someone that would work on
that equipment owned by an assisted living facility and you calling to
have it worked on.......would be a miracle. I would only work on it if
the facility called me......Not You!
Learn to bitch a little louder.
Call two or three companies out to estimate the job. Choose the one which is
polite, and explains the matter to you in terms you can understand.
At the moment, I don't have enough information to know what you're dealing
with. Sounds like baseboard eletric, with a setting for low, medium, high.
