The current position of the thermostat doesn't easily allow for relocation because of stairs, walls, etc. Also, the room where it's located is typically the coolest/hottest depending on the time of year.

The best answer I can come up with is to have some kind of wall mounted unit which will have the features of the current thermostat, but also a mobile temp sensor which can be moved from room to room. If the sensor has a temp of 78 and the thermostat is set at 76, the system kicks on - even if the temp in the thermostat's room in 75.
