ThermPro TP50 Digital Hygrometer: Simple, Dexterous
No matter where you live, humidity matters. The amount of moisture in the air determines the comfort level of your home. Humidity can impact the storage of wine and cigars, and many mechanical or electrical devices function their best at low humidity. Monitoring air quality in your home helps you understand your home’s comfort and make adjustments by adding or removing moisture to the air. Your skin, hair, and allergies can all be affected by humidity that is too high or too low. For simple home humidity monitoring, the ThermPro TP50 Digital Hygrometer is an excellent choice. This hygrometer has a large screen and provides home humidity monitoring with a slim margin of error.
Test: Getting Started with the ThermPro Hygrometer
When I initially pulled this product out of the box, I noticed how large the screen was. I’ve used quite a few home hygrometers and found this one easier to read at a glance with its 2.7-inch screen. This hygrometer arrived around the same time that the Govee Smart Hygrometer did.
I used the ThermPro TP50 as a control or baseline hygrometer in the living room and placed the other hygrometer in a storage area for testing. In tandem, these humidity monitors saved thousands of dollars in outdoor gear. The humidity in the gear storage area was far above that of the rest of the house. While testing this product, I opted to use the included fold-out stand, but the device also has a magnetic back, so it can easily mount onto your fridge.
Review: Functionality in Simplicity
While this device lacks the bells and whistles of some hygrometers, it thrives in its simplicity. Simple set up, straightforward use. For those who want a product to keep an eye on their homes’ comfort with minimal effort, this option will serve you well. When preparing for the day, a simple glance was all it took to ensure my home was comfortable.
While testing this product, it predominantly stayed in my living room. However, I was curious as to why my home-brewed kombucha was not producing new SCOBYs properly. I moved the ThermPro next to my kombucha brewing jars, it took about 10 seconds for the measurements to refresh, and I found out my brew was too cold.
For curiosity’s sake, I tested various areas of my home to understand the airflow through the house as well. The emoticon in the upper left corner indicates whether your home is comfortable, wet, or dry — a smiley face means you are good to go.
