Customer Question

I have a wine cellar that both the interior & exterior thermostats are not reading the actual temp in the wine room. They read warmer than the actual temp. Suggestions for correcting??

All thermostats read a bit inaccurately, usually by 1 or 2 degrees, tell me how much variance from the actual room temperature yours is reading, and a bit about the thermometer you are using to measure room temperature. One of them can be reading a little high from the actual temperature, the other a little low, so the apparent differential can be 4 or 5 degrees.

We can go from there.
