electronic thermostat question

  1. High all :)

    I've been looking at this electronic thermostat: Progrow TE25 Thermostat but it's quite pricey!

    I can't find another unit like it on the market; what should i be searching for?

    As you may know, i'm conducting an attic grow and environmental control is an issue now it's summer.

    The idea behind the thermostat is to have my air con units at one end and a heater at the other to maintain 78f which i believe is the optimal environmental temperature for growing MJ?

    Talking hypothetically, should the temps go up to around 90f in the day for 6 hours or so, then back down to 78f by night time, would this cause any major problems?

    Thanks in advance GC members :)

  2. If you are using portable a/c and heat then they should have a thermostat built in. If you are using a larger unit then it should connect to a standard thermostat you mount on the wall.

    I would try to keep the temps 5-10 lower than that.
  3. That happens on my terrace growing space in the high summer. Doesn´t appear to cause any problems - not that I can do anything about it.
