Plug-In Thermostat


Good idea.

From the website:

Plug-In Thermostat

Automatically controls space heaters, air conditioners, ventilation fans, etc.

The built-in thermostats on portable space heaters, air conditioners, and ventilating fans are almost always inaccurate.


They typically read the output temperature of the unit rather than the room temperature and shut off too soon.

Our Plug-In Thermostat mounts away from the unit and adjusts from 30°F to 110°F.

Use it with a heater to prevent pipes freezing in a vacation home, to keep your garage comfortable while you’re working, or with a ventilation fan to keep your attic properly ventilated.

Controls items that use up to a 16 amp load; 115V; includes 8-foot power cord.

I agree with Lilorfannie, this is a great idea. It really makes sense to me and hopefully some people learn from this.

That IS a good idea. Those are all good uses, too. And I am pretty sure that my home's thermostat is largely useless- it might be that temperature in the hallway where it sits, but the rest of the house sure doesn't feel that warm.
