Did you put the auber and its wire on the back of the pipe out of sight?The Auber probe is super sensitive. You see an immediate reaction to changes in the air supply or adjustments to the fire. The Condar is really sluggish in comparison. I now have the thermocouple mounted and in place just a couple inches above the Condar probe. It disturbs me that the Condar reads so low and slow, especially when one is starting up a fire. Eventually once the stove is cruising they will get closer to each other (~100º) but on startup the Auber is reading around 150º higher.
Yes, that's right. Since adding the Auber, that is what I have come to rely on.For my T5 alderlea, double wall pipe, would you recommend the mechanical Condar or the digital Auber? Seems like the Condar is simpler but less precise, whereas the Auber is more expensive, but comes with a high-temp alarm and is more responsive?
