    How do you check for humidity? like what level its at? Do I buy a certain thermometer and it says it?

    I got my at Walmart. But if you follow the instructions on the manual exactly like they say with humidity you should be fine. But if not Walmart does have them for ubder 10$.

    I got mine at Walmart for about 8-10 bucks and it worked WONDERFUL. I did replace mine every year instead of going thru the recalibration thing because it was easier for me lol And for 10 bucks Its worth it.
