    Water proof T-stat/T-stat cover?

    I have a sterling heater that sits directly above our wastewater garage.The T-stat is inside the unit and is sensing return air. Unfortunatly it is super humid in wastewater and it keeps ruining the T-stats, I am wondering if there is a such thing as a waterproof T-stat? I have never heard of one. The other thing I thought about is do they make a seal tight T-stat cover? The ones I found on Grainger all have breather holes. Understandably this is the worst design and location for a furnace but I have brought it to the attention of the folks who I need to make aware of these things unfornately that is is far as it has gotten. Obviously I am still held accountable to make this thing operate. Any help would be great!

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    If it is line voltage convert it to low voltage... Get a stat with a remote sensor and mount the stat someplace safe.
