The temperture will vary aprox 6 degrees is there a way to keep it more consistent
I have a problem with a new heater doing the same thing, in my case it is simply that the thermostat is not exposed to room temperature more directly, what I mean is, it needs to be more external and not encased in the heater housing so much. This sort of sounds to me like what might be happening. For example, mine works fine if it doesn't have to respond quickly to changing temps in a short time and reacts very slowly to these drops in temps. On the other hand I can put it in a room and set it, put a thermometer in there and in will regulate the temps constantly as long a window or door isn't left open to cause slow response to show up. I know this may not make sense but it is the case in my case I can assure you. My suggestion therefore might be to look for a external thermostat that can be used with like the torpedoe heaters, electric heaters, light bulb if you wanted to help warm a well house, whatever you need to plug into it and this would then be up to the task of perfect response to these possible temp changes. Then just turn your built in thermostat all the way up and plug into the external type. I have had one of these thermostats going without flaw every winter for about 14 plus years without fail. Mine is set to just above freezing at 34 degrees for pipe protection and it is always hanging there with dust and all, pretty well made, extremely durable! Ready Heater has em not sure of all that carry these but they have a small chain attached so you can hang them on stuff.
Basically I'm saying the built in thermostats ****!
