I have built a small cabinet incubator out of a beverage cooler. Its 15x15x24 tall. I am using a inkbird itc-1000f controller with 2 100 watt ptc ceramic heating elements. I have a fan blowing on the elements. I have the controller set to kick on at 97f and off at 98f. Using a brinese spot check thermometer i get a reading at 97.2 for a low and 103.1 for a high. I add these together and get a average of 100.1f. Is this the right way to figure the average temp?
