I'm trying to rig up a thermostat in my greenhouse. The dude at Lowe's told me get an attic fan thermostat but when I got home to install it, I soon found out that it is a cooling thermo instead of a heating thermo. Can I convert it? If so, how?
I had the thermostat wired so it would power an outlet when it reached the set temperature and I have my 2 ceramic heaters plugged into the plug.
Can I hook up one of those little round thermostats and accomplish this or does the thermostat have to be plugged into an inverter or converter (or something like that)?
Any suggestions? Or is there something out there that is fool-proof that I can rig up or buy?
I know just enough about this kind of stuff to get me in trouble.
thanx ahead for your responses.
