Subject: Fridge thermostats

Roger suggests using the Honeywell thermostat for converting a fridge
to our temerature range. I put forth that a Hunter AirStat or
Hunter Energy Miser (?) window air-conditioner thermostats are much
easier to use and are cheaper. I paid $24.95 for mine at Builder's
Square. It plugs into the wall outlet, the fridge (or in my case
chest freezer) plugs into the outlet on the front of the unit and
a remote sensor is at the end of a ~3 foot plastic covered wire.
No cutting of wires needed. A different Builder's Square in my area
charges $29.95 for the same unit -- I was told it was because that
store suffers from a lot of shoplifting. If you live in Anchorage,
and window air conditioners are foreign to your area, ask your hardware
store owner to order it from Hunter (the ceiling fan people) and make
sure you get the model that has the outlet on the front (the window
air-conditioner model).
