I have an in-wall mounted 120 plug-in air conditioner that I want to
cotrol through a thermostat. Does anyone know of a block that I can buy
that will control the on/off switch between the wall outlet and the
air conditioner that will turn the unit on at a given tempreture?
Specificly, I'm wanting to turn the unit on and try to hold a small
room at 40-45 degrees to age raw cheeze in.
Alternatively, can a cheap thermostat be "cut" into pigtail between the
wall plug and the switch to turn the unit on/off If so how?
Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
A line voltage thermostat would do the trick, IF you can find a stat that
can handle the starting current of the a/c unit.
Every window shaker I have seen has a stat inside of them that turns the
compressor on and off.
Put a thermometer in the space and turn the unit on. Check the space in a
couple of hours and adjust the dial accordingly. Keeping the air moving
seems like a benefit not a hindrance to me.
Sure hope your window shaker has enough capacity to lower the area down to
40 F. Pretty aggressive concept for a window shaker.
45 degrees is too low a temp for an air conditioner. you will need to
get a refrigeration unit for this purpose. a home air conditioner or
room air conditioner is only good for about 68 degrees minimum.
