Questions & Answers

Can this be surface mounted, or does it require a box?

I am changing out a manual switch that is in the water heater closet in the hallway. There is no empty room between water heater and bedroom doors for a box. It's pretty much solid studs. Hopefully I can drill a hole for the wires and make it work.
Asked by: Mike
I replaced an existing unit, so the box was already in place. The screws that are included for mounting the unit are for a box. That being said, with the right screws for the wall, you should be able to mount it without a box.

Evaporative Cooler Digital Controller is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 33.

I have this thermostat installed in my shop and it works very well and is perfect for this time of year in Phoenix (before the humidity goes up). It's a simple T-stat, setting temperature could not be easier, arrow up or arrow down. Other settings are nearly as easy to set. You can't program in temperature rise and fall, so as soon as the room temperature rises above the pre-set, the cooler turns on and as soon as it reaches the pre-set temperature it shuts down. If you have the pad pre-wet setting to zero it will cycle on and off frequently when temperatures are hovering around your programmed pre-set such as in the mornings and at night. After playing with the settings I left the pre-wet time at 4 minutes. This gives more time between starts, similar too a programmed temperature rise. If I want the cooler to stay on full time I set the temp to an unobtainable low temp. This thermostat is great in its simplicity. It seems to be well built so I am not concerned about it's lifespan. I would buy it again.

That being said, I bough another when I installed a new cooler because I like it being temperature controlled. Hopefully the previous failure isn’t repeated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So happy to have this! I picked this up at the store and the people who helped me with my web purchase were fantastic! Then, my electrician installed this and it worked right away. It hasn't been cool enough yet for it to shut off automagically, but I am confident. It didn't fit quite right into the old 6-position switch box, but that part of the wall will be redone shortly so that's not a problem for me. Others might want to look at changing the housing . . . Also, read the instructions about when the unit will shut itself off based on the temperature. It has to be 3 degrees lower than the set point to shut off. :-) But I love this thing. I find myself checking the little green light and feeling confident when I see that it's on.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What cover plate, over the electrical box, is supposed to be used? I have a 2-gang electrical bo... What cover plate, over the electrical box, is supposed to be used? I have a 2-gang electrical box that MUST be covered up. (It appears the manufacturer intended that no cover plate was "needed" to "cover" a 1-gang box. Tacky.) This unit's mount holes are 3.25" apart; same as old style wall switch. The rear area of the T-stat is rectangular, like that of the large opening Decora or Decorator (depending on brand) cover plates. But these Decora plates use the 3.75" distance mount holes; not the needed 3.25" holes. They won't fit! On top of the mount hole problem, these Decora plate ID openings for the body of switches or outlets are 1.5" wide & the required plate width for the T-stat is 1.75"! I could enlarge the side ID on a plate, but I can't change the mount hole location! So far, the only option I see is keep this unit & fab a cover plate or dump this T-stat for something else!?? (The in-store reps were also at a loss for an answer.) Unit may work fine but can't install with needed 2-gang cover plate to find out. Therefore I must return it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a good buy After you set the temperature correctly, this works nicely to turn the cooler on as needed, especially when you're not home to turn a switch. However, the three degree lower programming to shut the cooler down is inefficient - I live in the high desert and it's plenty hot, but the cooler does not turn off until 2:00 AM with this feature (the house is a meat locker by then), so I shut it off manually at bedtime and turn it back on again in the morning, the residual heat inside the box it's mounted in does make a difference here too.This seems to pretty much defeat the purpose of having a thermostat to me . . . this has been both a pricey and disappointing purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Machine! Doesn't work On the low setting this thermostat heats itself up and never turns off. The temperature it is reporting is usually 10 degrees above actual ambient. It isn't ventilated enough to provide accurate temperatures. Don't waste your money! You are better off with an on off switch.
