Reviews

Farm Innovators Thermostatically Controlled Outlet, TC-3 is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Energy saver This item works as described. I have a springhouse with water pipes that are susceptible to freezing. I plugged a heater into this device and the heater kicks on and off as needed. Now, I don’t have to remember to turn the heater off after the weather warms back up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thermo cube Bought one a few months ago for my insulated well room heater, but it quit working and I had a pipe to freeze and burst. Must be some of that China made junk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves real $$ This is a replacement for a thermocube we bought 5 years ago. We use them to keep the donkey, dog and chicken heaters running only at 35* and below. They turn off when it hits 45*. We can see real money being saved on our electric bill we we have these in use. If you use them most people don't know you have to place them in the freeze for a bit (+/- 30 min) then plug in to test that they still work each season.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Working so far Seems to be doing what it is supposed to. I just wish there was a lower range to it. On at 33 and off at 35 would be good. We have plenty of days that stay between 32-45 and I don't need the light on all day for that!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product for keeping water from freezing We have several of these around our place. They are especially useful if you live in the southern states where temps can be in the 20's one day and 50's the next. We use them to turn heat on pipes and machinery. Since it cuts back off at 45', we save a bit of electricity. You need to keep an eye on them and have a spare. After a couple of years, they will begin to fail. It's a great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item for winter pipes & down hole water pump Bought these for our water pump/pipes from freezing & busting in winter with a heat lamp plugged into it @ the camps well cover in S LA. Bought more for ARK.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Many Generators. Thermo cubes are great for connecting to the engine heaters that serve engine generators that are either mounted outside or are mounted in buildings--provided that these generators don't have to run HOSPITAL DUTY, where they have to start and assume load instantaneously; or diesel generators that are hard to start. Those type generators have to be kept hot all of the time. For many generator applications, it is fine to have the generator setup so that it runs for as much as a minute before assuming load. For those applications, the cube keeps the generator plenty warm enough to start in cold weather, and the generator can heat itself up sufficiently before taking load, that it does not need to be kept hot. The big thing the cube does is to prevent wasting electricity keeping the generator needlessly hot in the summer; causing the radiator hoses to soften and fail because they are constantly hot; causing the engine heater to fail prematurely because it is on all of the time; and causing the radiator to corrode out prematurely because it is constantly kept hot. I've personally seen many more instances of a generators failing because of constantly-not cooling system problems, than I have of generators not starting due to cold. Many manufacturers recommend that all generators be kept hot all of the time. In so many cases, that is not necessary and leads to more failures due to the implications of a constantly hot cooling system, than it solves. GIVE IT A TRY!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No more frozen waters! Best thing to have for controlling water and shed temperatures. Like another reviewer said the ground prong is very delicate. Also, don't over load it - I ruined two thermo cubes by using high heat setting on a portable heater. That's the reason for 4 and not 5 stars. I am going to look into a heat thermo cube to get for the summer to operate a fan.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great item, but unreliable I purchased 2 of these. I plugged 2 x 250 watt heat lamps into one, and an aquarium heater into the other (all in a chicken coop). The one with the heat lamps (even though rated to 1800 w) failed within 3 weeks. I got a replacement, and that one failed as well, within a month. My 3rd replacement also failed this week (4 weeks after the last one). It just leaves the lamps on all the time and runs up my power bill. I wish there was an alternative product to try, but I can't find one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works fairly well but be careful when unplugging. I bought two of these outlets last year. I found that the ground prong was extremely delicate so make sure you plug in where you want it permanently. If you try and remove it the ground prong may get stuck in the wall outlet. The thermostat went on before freezing but lower than stated. The thermostat went off at a higher temp than stated but still within an acceptable range. I felt my greenhouse was safe from freezing while using this cube once I figured out it's pattern. I will likely buy again. I just wish I could find the cooling outlet at Tractor Supply.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from short love Loved it for the first month. Thats all i got. One month. back to the drawing board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheapest freeze protection! I was looking for a way to keep my chicken water from freezing. It's difficult to find something specific for chicken waterers. Most of them make it difficult too keep from freezing too. I plugged this with 2 small aquarium heaters (one for man water tank and the other for the tray) and it's worked great. Saves me electricity by not having to be on all of the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used them for 2+ years. I've used these for our horse water buckets for the last 2 yrs going into year 3. I have 8 and 1 just went bad. Going to get a replacement. Great to keep electric bill down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great for chicken coops I use this to warm my chicken coop. Was worried about leaving heat lamp on all the time so I started using this. It turns the lamp on when the temp gets freezing and turns off at 40 or so.

What temperature is it set at. It doesn’t say anywhere on the temp setting

This outlet turns on as temperature falls to approximately 35°F, and turns off as temperature rises above 45°F.
