My cellar is being put to the test for the next few weeks. My fridge died and a replacement isn't in stock anywhere in town. who knew 30" wide fridges which used to be the standard are not popular enough to keep in stock... Anyways It's still cold at night but warm during the day so the cold cellar is loaded up with everything from the fridge.

The milk and other diary is in a cooler with a block of ice and in the cellar. Just about everything else is just near the floor. At night I turn on the cooling fan and during the day as soon as it gets warmer outside then in the cellar I turn it off.

Last night was the first night and the middle of the room temperature has dropped to 8.3 C in it with the outside temp hitting a low of 4 C and inside staying at 19 C.

This should be interesting.

Looks like Daox's differential controller is just the thing for you.

I know. I've got everything but the relay here. Also a lot short on time. I should track down a 5v 110V relay and then one night perhaps.
