Our HVAC line voltage thermostat products are commonly found in industrial, agricultural and commercial settings to monitor air temperature. The thermostats are either hard wired directly, or use a piggyback plug, to a heat source. When the air temperature falls within the determined environment, the line voltage thermostat coil senses the temperature change. This in turn triggers the thermostat to operate the heater to eliminate the freezing temperatures. As the air temperature rises during heater operation, the thermostat returns back to normal. When it does, its will begin shutting the heater down again until temperature falls.
To have the most accurate temperature reading, it’s best to mount your HVAC line voltage thermostat 5-6 feet above the floor. The reason this is the best location is because it will be exposed to the average temperature of the controlled space. Areas you should not mount the control is where it could be affected by unusual heat or cold temperatures, such as in sunlight, near an entry way, or outside wall.
Tempro thermostats are available with an extended bulb to sense a remote location. These include areas such as for outside air temperature, where the control is located in a safe operating environment.
