Trouble Locating The T-Stat
Hi, Im an Licenced Electrician working on my own house and doing the rough-in Im having trouble locating the T-Stat. I already roughed this in and was approved by the AHJ, well the
Electrical AHJ. I can still make changes and have it re-inspected.

Here is the problem HVAC Crew located 2nd new return duct under the Hall closet about 24 x8. Maybe I should say built into the lower section of the hall closet. There are other metal round returns in the ceiling as well that they installed.
The Hvac Crew wants to put the T-Stat just 5 feet from it into the living room\ hall entry point .but about 3.5 feet above is a supply duct. This supply duct is just about over the T-Stat ( about 18" in front of it and 2 feet to the right) Im thinking system will cycle off to soon because of the supply duct above it. The other inside wall is taken up by a flat screen tv 2 feet from that is another supply duct in the ceiling.
There is no other place to put this T-stat other than the two locations in the photo. The is also Stairway in the photo that goes down to the finished basement from this hallway where I located the T-stat.
What is the best location for good air flow, and not dead air space .
If the Hvac Guys are correct the I will move it. I only placed The t-Stat There because No one got back to me on the location of where the T-stat goes, so I took my best guess just to get this electrical inspected and turned on for the The hvac guys to install and test the equipment. I figured I could move this stuff later if needed.
