Now that it's warming up, I need to finish off my cold room.
The window unit I'm planning to use does not want to cool below 60 degrees. I have it hooked to a Johnson Controls temp controller, but the issue is with the unit itself.
I've pulled off the front panel and located the temperature sensor. My approach for the time being is to put the sensor into a coffee can with a small incandescent bulb to warm it up, thus hopefully bringing the room temp down below 60.
Does anyone have advice/recommendations/links for a more elegant way of rigging this? Duct-taping a coffee can to the side of the a/c seems a tad hill-billy.
I haven't pulled the controls fully apart to see if I can bypass the temp sensor as I'll need to pull the unit out of the window to open the case further. It needs to come out anyway so I can finish painting and insulating so I may get to that this weekend.
Nonetheless, I'm sure others have dealt with this before and I could benefit from some advice.
