reliable, but inaccurateFriday, June 17, 2011
I had used a digital cooler thermostat that one can usually find at one of the big-box stores. It worked ok, but it had the problem of self-heating its temperature sensor. With the cooler off and the thermostat displaying 75 degrees, I'd turn on the cooler and the displayed temperature would climb to 85, even though an analog temperature gauge still showed 75. This meant that setting a temperature was basically impossible. I had installed one of these style cooler thermostats in a new room and it worked wonderfully. The ability to control the fan speed (on high when the temperature is far above the set point) is a nice feature. I decided to use this same model to replace the goofy digital unit. It works well as expected, but to keep the temperature at 75, we need to set it to 85. It seems that its calibration is wayyyyy off. I'll try and fix that, but overall it is much better than what was used before.
Actually works. The heat from its internal motor relay does not seem to heat up its temperature sensor like another model I have used.
Very expensive for what it does!
