Thanks for helping me out there Lynne ;)

I have this same thermostat used in my chambers, too. I like it very much.

Hi Heather! I'm curious, this thermostat says its for heating mats, will it work for my CHE? If so, how does it connect to the heater?

Yes, it will work with any heat source you plug into it. It is marketed for seedling mats, but is not limited to them.

I like how you made your door. The snug fit with the overlap.
Because my door sits inside the opening, I get moisture build up there and it's only a matter of time before I have to re do it.

I know these posts are old but I was really hoping to see pictures but they're all saying an error has occurred 😢 help?

Here are some examples. In your area, these boxes would only work during the warmer months. What species have you got?
