    I just bought one of the Springfield thermometers that display the temp and humidity from Wal-Mart. How do you know if the temp is correct? Do you just take readings from other thermometers and take the average?
    Thanks,

    Compare it to a medical thermometer...the one's like you check for a fever with.

    Best wishes,
