Would a framed thermostat interfere with its reading the temperature correctly?
Woodbridge Environmental Tiptophouse.com on Mar 28, 2013It can but it depends upon a few factors such as size of frame that surrounds it, how far it sticks beyond the front of the thermostat and the color. If its a dark color it will tend to absorb heat fooling the thermostat into thinking its warmer, shiny, this can alter its readings as well. It is not suggested to cover or surround the unit if at all possible. But it has been done on several occasions by many people without to much issue.Helpful Reply

Woodbridge Environmental Tiptophouse.com on Mar 29, 2013Digital has nothing to do with it sensing temps MIles. If the air is not flowing correctly over and around the thermostat it will not function as it is intended to do. Only thing digital has to offer is that the thermostat does not need to be level to work and it tends to be a bit more precise in reading the temps as compared to the bi-metal and mercury types.Helpful Reply
