How to Calibrate a Thermostat?

Answer

Purchase a standard glass thermometer, that uses mercury and tape it to the wall next your your wall thermostat. Wait for a full hour to pass to make sure that the thermometer has adjusted to the surrounding environment. Pull back the clasp holding the thermostat's cover into place. Use a screwdriver to pull out screws holding the unit to the wall and then pull the entire thermostat out. Put the thermostat back into place and reattach the screws. Replace the thermostat entirely if it still gives an incorrect temperature reading.
