Essential Guide

Where Should Internal Temperature Sensors be Placed?

  • Try to avoid placing the temperature sensing device in the combination with other devices, particular any that have even a low heat output.
  • Do not install the temperature sensor near appliances that consume a significant amount of power or out put heat such as ovens, fridges, dishwashers. 
  • Avoid radiators and cooling systems of any kind.
  • The temperature sensor should not be exposed to direct sun.
  • The installation of sensors on the inside of an outside wall might have a negative impact on the temperature measurement.
  • Make sure there is no pipe work in the wall behind the sensor.
  • Ideally temperature sensors should be installed away from windows, ventilation units or any excess air movement.
  • Temp sensing, particularly in rooms with convective heating such as radiators is best measured at or near head height, so around 1500 to 2000 ffl (finished floor level).
  • If climate control in a bathroom is required the Keypad will need to be in the room not on the wall outside. If this is not feasible it may be possible to link a separate temperature probe to the keypad or other bus device.
