    Spend $ to move the unit to a location you won't hear it? Buy compressor blanket to muffle noise?
    Which makes more sense to you?
    CONSERVATION - turning your thermostat back and being uncomfortable. Maybe saving 5-10%
    ENERGY EFFICIENCY - leaving your thermostat where everyone is comfortable. Saving 30-70%

    DO THE NUMBERS! Step on a HOMESCALE.
    What is comfort? Well, it AIN'T just TEMPERATURE!

    Energy Obese? An audit is the next step - go to BPI.org, or RESNET, and find an auditor near you.

    I think I'll end up moving it regardless (although as mentioned in the first post of the thread, it's so darned loud I think I'll still hear it at night). It's my wife's comfort that has become the driving force behind this initiative now.

    Unless someone can suggest a retail thermostat that allows aux setting in the programming (still the ideal), I'm asking that we put this one to bed. The thread has turned into a DIY/hack/kludge-fest, which was not my intent in posting this in the beginning.
