On June 28 Erik Henchal wrote about the "Hunter Energy Monitor
AC" model 42205 thermostat for room air conditioners and its use
with a refrigerator. I got one of these after reading his posting
and am very very pleased with it. I just have a couple of details
to add about performance.
The unit I have hunts around the setpoint by a degree or so and the
indicated temperature is 2-3 degrees low. The setpoint range is 40-90,
not 30-85. Finally, I wish the thermistor cord was five feet long
instead of four to reach further into the fridge.
But these are of course all just nits. The basic operation is
fantastic and I'm done with wet towels and fans forever. Getting
"process control" for under $50 is a real hoot. Thanks for the tip, Erik!
