Thanks for your reply.
Bad deal that bridge - I too have been on it several times. According to today's paper the hwy 36 bridge over 95 (Stillwater) is in really bad shape. They had several pictures showing chunks of cement missing and rebar poking through the under side.

    the 1966 Minnesota rambler that we just moved into this past winter that had two seperate thermostats (old mercury type) in the hall. One for the attic installed Central Air system and for the main level heating zone. The Central air system only cools the main level - the same area that is controlled by the adjacent thermostat for the boiler. I would like to combine the original main level thermostadt for the boiler with that for the main level cooling. Can I do this? Is there any specific type of thermostat that I should buy, or specific requirements? I currently have a Lux TX1500B which I did use in the winter, and it seems to work fine. It also works fine for the cnetral air. I've not had both systems connected to it at the same time for fear that since there were two seperate thermostats in the first place there must be some reason for that. Any tips or advice would be appreciated. Brian

    Just use...

    A thermostat with separate RH and RC terminals to keep the transformers separated... If this is greek to you please consult your local HVAC specialist!

    Where in MN? I lived in the cities as well as central MN... How about the bridge? I have crossed it hundreds of times, sad deal.

    Yeah

    I saw the picts on Startribune.com... 36 always was a bit of a mess. I live near Boston now and things are not much better here, if the bridges don't get you, the tunnels will. :-(
