Temperature Reads too low at night.
Temperature can read too low (or inaccurate) at night when placed close to a radiant heat source, like a house, building or structure. It can also read lower then other stations in your area due to irrigation or sprinklers.
- Place the sensor inside next to the indoor console sensor. Wait about 1 hour for stabilization. The sensors should agree within the accuracy specifications. Most RTD (resistive thermal device) sensors are accurate within +/- 2 degF. Thus, the sensors should agree within 4 degF.
- Mercury or red spirit thermometers are very accurate. Inside your house, place a red spirit thermometer next to the digital thermometer. The thermometers should agree within 2 degF.
- For colder temperature verification, place the sensor with the red spirit thermometer in the regrigerator or freezer.
- If the sensor is separate, place the sensor in a shaded area on the north side of the structure to avoid direct and radiant heat.
- Temperature sensors that do not have radiation shields will absorb solar energy and read higher than the ambient temperature. To prevent this problem, purchase a solar radiation shield from Ambient Weather.
