Thermostat for Fans/Heaters
Bought this thermostat to use in a small green house in conjunction with an electric heater in the fall/winter and with a cooling fan in the summer. Never worked from day 1, set point on dial varied by as much as 40 degrees. Never had any idea when the thermostat would work. 30 degree nights never turned on heater, then next night the heater would turn on at 50 degrees. I never new what to expect! Thermostat was NOT is mis-wired, as I validated with schematic after first unsuccessful night. Plan to evaluate the thermostat at the upper end of it's range this summer.

Worth the money
Purchased this unit for my hanging propane furnace in my workshop. Unit was easy to wire up and use. Has worked flawlessly. Dial temp is right on with my wall thermometer. Would definitly recommend.

Cheap and Cheap
Originally bought 3 for greenhouse heater control. 1 Failed before the second winter. Bought 4 more to control 2nd greenhouse ahd to have a spare. Accuracy of temperature dial is way off on all units (20+ degree error). Cheap stuff.

Thermostat Used In Greenhouse
I bought three of these thermostats to control heating equipment in my greenhouse. They have done an excellent job and saved me money on electricity. Many times it is early morning before the heat is turned on since I am able to set the temperatures to the mid 30 degrees. I have staged my heating equipment to add more heat as the temperatures drop to only run what is required. Also, I have nights where the temperature gets colder than forecast and my heat lamps come on, stage 1, protecting my plants.

I used this thermostat to control 2 ceramic heat emitters in a dog house. Hard wire hook up takes less than 5 minutes and so far this thermostat has been functioning very reliably. The unit turns off promptly at the set position, and it doesn't cycle back on until the temperature drops approx 4-5 degrees (so plan accordingly if you are trying to prevent freezing temps). It's a great unit that can be mounted just about anywhere since it's moisture resistant and it is useful for just about any application that a thermostat is needed as a switch.

This is a very nice thermostat. This is the only one I could find that went down to 30 deg. I am using it for heat tape and now I don't have to worry about pluging them in before it gits too cold.

a decent priced t-stat for freeze prevention, I used it in the shallow well pump house to keep pump and filters from freezing. This thermostat was exactly what I was looking for to turn on and off heat lamp when it is needed. I wired it in front of a receptacle specifically used for heat lamp and that leaves an option of using it for any heater in the future.

Worked in my hotbox
Wired this up to a heater inside an outdoor RPZ enclosure to keep it from freezing. Nice item.

I have just mounted this thermostat in a green house for controlling a venting fan and heater. The unit appears well made and is easy to install. Initial performance is as expected.
