Default Re: Thermostat that goes down to 32F?

Wow, seems very few here actually have the ability to read the damn
post.

I said that if I want a setpoint of 40, I don't want that to be the
very lowest setting on the thermostat because the errors are going to
be worse at the edges of the setting range. Capische?

If the thermostat goes down to 30, and I set it for 40, it'll probably
work better than a thermostat that goes down to 40, and is set for 40.

Smartass. Thanks for contributing something useful.

Check this with a thermometer known to be good.

I'm sure it cools off more slowly than does the outside, but after
some length of time, it may feel warmer only because there isn't the
slightest wind, or the humidity is different.

High humidity makes you feel warmer, but won't keep liquids from
freezing.

So he misread your post, or didn't fully get all you were intending.
So what?

How much are you paying him to read carefully?

>Smartass.


He was mildly sarcastic, but he wasn't insulting like you are.
You're the jerk here. An ungrateful jerk.

> Thanks for contributing something useful.


Even his sarcasm was meant to help you, while this is just to be
nasty. You're a jackass.
