A range of room thermometers, from traditional, spirit-filled instruments, to hi-tech, digital units.
The traditional wall thermometer is now filled with spirit rather than mercury, which has now been banned for all but laboratory use. This type of room thermometers is available in a number of styles, all of which clearly show the correct room temperature.
A dial room thermometer relies on a bimetal strip to move the needle to the correct temperature. This strip is wrapped into a coil with one end of it being attached to the thermometer casing and the other attached pointer. The strip is actually made from two separate strips of different metals, usually steel and copper. These metals will expand at different rates as they are heated with the metal that expands most on the outer side of the coil. As the strip warms up the metal will bend in one direction and in the other direction when it cools. Although our dial home thermometers are available in different designs, such as hypothermia or window thermometer, the technology behind them is the same.
The Thermometer Superstore range of room thermometers also includes digital instruments.
A digital room thermometer will not only provide accuracy but many have additional features such as recording the maximum and minimum temperatures, a clock, hygrometer etc.
Our range of room thermometers and wall thermometers is extremely diverse ensuring that everyone can find a home thermometer to meet their requirements,
