Another more expensive and reliable alternative to Thermokool & Koolatron is using a made in America brooder.

Anyone try such a device? http://www.aveyincubator.com/price%20list.htm

I am keeping this on the back burner as the expected life of my Koolatron is limited.

Do these cool as well as heat? Wasn't clear from a quick glance. For me, it would have to cool since I often ferment in the 65-70F range when ambient temps are in the 80's.

Bill,

I asked the company:

"I have been looking at your products. I have an application unrelated to brooding/incubating and was curious if it would work for me. Do your units maintain a temperature based upon ambient outside temperatures? For example if it is 80 degrees in the room, can I maintain a cooler temperature of 60 degrees and also in the reverse 60 ambient to 80 inside the brooder?"

Jim Avey replied "That is exactly what it will do."

I like the fact that you can contact the owner and it is made in the USA.
