I ordered the Celsius version of the thermometer but received the Fahrenheit instead. After a call to customer service, they sent the Celsius version. Watching the progress of the FedEx "Smart post" is painful.
Finally, i get the thermometer. Nice and clear face and indicator.
I eagerly hung the thermometer on the North side of an out building next to my swimming pool, expecting it to agree with my other thermometers that I have on the property. After 5 minutes it jerked up from 30° to 35°. A few minuted later jerked to 38°. 30 minutes later it was still at 38°, so I tapped the thermometer and it finally jerked to 44° (which was the temperature on my other thermometer, a small alcohol thermometer that agrees with the other thermometers and is mounted to the same wall as the new one)
Possibly some silicone lube on the indicator shaft would help.
I had a similarly bad experience as someone, the plastic hanger broke off the back after a year of hanging on a tree in the backyard. A second one, in the front yard, that is hung by two screws on a post is doing fine. The faces of these are easy to read and we can get them in Celsius. So, for the longevity of the product, it would be wise to mount it to something where the wind won't torque it too hard. I love it enough, that I'm purchasing one to replace the one that didn't quite survive all four seasons a la Detroit, but I will mount it with greater wisdom this time around.
Unlike the other reviewers, I wanted a wall thermometer that was Celsius only to replace an old Hoffritz one I had from the 1970s.
I wish I could post a picture to show the difference between the two thermometers, but this one looks as if it will last a lot longer than the Hoffritz. Also, the scale is much more detailed than the Hoffritz.
The thermometer is excellent, but I am disappointed it was shipped by Fedex StupidPost. That meant the thermometer sat in the PO for nearly two weeks. It probably wouldn't have had I received tracking info.
But, that is another story. Buy the thermometer and ask that they use a better method to ship it than Fedex.
Easy to read -large-basic thermometer.
This thermometer is somewhat unique as it shows only one temperature scale-allows for a larger temperature display in the desired system. REALLY like having ONLY the farenheit scale displayed! Surprisingly, I found it hard to find a single scale thermometer.
Glad I bought two!
I have had one of these since I moved into my house 20+ years ago (then it was made in the USA). Always worked well year round. Finally "died" this winter so I am ordering another one today.
Edit: This thermometer is still made in the USA.
Bought one of these a year ago and hung it on a tree where we could read it from the house. It stopped working exactly one year later. Also, the plastic hanging piece on the back chipped away, just from exposure to wind and weather, I guess. Not a good thing for an outdoor thermometer.
I had to adjust is a bit, I use it my warehouse. I put it next to a digital temp to make sure it was correct. I had to adjust it a bit, but so far it is working well.
I like the large numbers on the dial. It seems to be reliable.
I've mounted this so I can see it from inside the house I like the large numbers and the long bright red pointer that almopst touches the degree marks helping me to see the temperature from a distance.
I love my thermometer I ordered. I have in on my front porch, Mounted right in front of my front door. I can go & look out my door & see the temperature for year round.It was delivered promptly.This is the first online item I have purchased & am very pleased with the transaction.
its hard to find a thermometer that goes above 120 degrees. i live in the desert where its common to be 126 and this product does a great job. i have had it for a few years now and unfortunately the sun has won and killed the lens. so im here as a repeat customer. great product!
High contrast without distracting background make it easy to read the outside temperature before you go out which is the whole point of having an outdoor thermometer
