    Hello,

    I had an Infinity system installed about 8 months ago. Right now I'm getting some "suspect" humidity readings on the stat. It is showing 60%RH while my Radio Shack model (not the cheapest one) in close proximity to the Infinity control is showing 47%.

    I know there is some +or- in these things, but a 13% variance seems high to me. Honestly the humidity in the house "feels" a lot closer to 47% than it does 60%.

    FYI, the temperature readings between the two devices seem to be fairly close.

    Should I get the stat checked out???

    Thanks!

    I would.

    They may not have sealed the hole in the wall that the wire comes throough.

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

    Is it that important that the hole in the wall be sealed, because mine is not.

    VERY important that the wall be sealed, otherwise air from the attic/crawlspace/etc will move past the stat & it'll sense that rather than the actual inside of the house.
