Well Monday Dec 7 we will get another step forward. Having health issues sucks when even firing a contractor
What’s a good wireless thermostat. I don’t want these bozos drilling in my walls running wires.

    Glad you're making some progress. What do you want the WiFi stat to do? It will help with the suggestions
    You can have it good, fast or cheap. Pick two

    Well the latest is the initial contractor has folded his business. So I’ve called in a new contractor. As far as the thermostat goes, I wanted to avoid running low voltage wire to the 4 locations and use a wireless system for the thermostats. However the new contractor suggested to have the wired thermostats.

    Wired t-stat are the most reliable. No batteries to mess with or RF interference. If you have reasonable access above or below and you can run wires only having to fish a wall or two, that is the way to go. Pull more conductors that you think you need, the wire is the cheap part.
    If you need to go wireless, Honeywell has some good products.
