ACONT800 Thermostat and Outdoor Temp Sensor
My outdoor temperature sensor reads about 5 degrees too high. I've extended the leads about 6' to move the thermistor into permanent shade on the north side of the unit. It's about 5 ft. from the foundation in an area that never receives direct sunlight.
Is there a way to calibrate the thermostat to compensate for the incorrect reading? I can always subtract 5 in my head, but it would be nice to show the correct temp on the screen. Additionally, it's a dual fuel unit, so it doesn't switch over at the correct temperature.
