Costs me more to heat in summer than it does in winter :shock:

It’s a great bit of kit, whisper quiet and super efficient :mrgreen: but in answer to your actual question, no I don’t have any backup in place, though I do have a 2kw titanium heating probe that I could drop into the drum in an emergency. However I haven’t needed any backup so far and it maintains the set temp easily, plus I don’t cover :obscene-drinkingcheers: :handgestures-thumbup: :mrgreen:

Stuart,have you got a link for that drop in titanium probe,can't find one anywhere

Hi Marek, I should have said, also just get the probe only and buy an inkbird controller as they’re only £30 and work perfectly with it :handgestures-thumbup: :mrgreen:
