    It was mentioned to me the other day, that along with my addiction to wood, and wood burning, I may have an addiction for thermometers (room thermometers).
    At the moment, I only have 4 working thermometers in the house, and another 3 outside.
    I told my wife that I would like more. I'd like to have one (accurate) one in each room that we regularly use. Just to see how the air flows, and to be able to move air to the rooms that need more heat, or cooling.
    Right now, the four I have in the house, if you put them beside each other, they could be up to 5::C out from each other.
    So? Any one else like me?

    Hmmm prolly too many. There's 2 in the greenhouse, one on the rooftop weather station, a few in the house, a remote wireless one in the garage and one on the thermostat. Oh, and an IR thermometer, one on the stove and one in the flue. If I find more than a couple degrees difference I usually chuck the suspect thermometer. Even our old Sandhill is accurate within 5 degrees @500F.

    and the one on the thermostat itself.
