Hi, I'm a newbee who really appreciates this site! I am seriously contemplating buying the Sportsman 1502, I spoke to a distributor and was about to purchase, when he told me it would struggle to keep temp. if I kept it in our basement. He had asked if it was cold down there (old renovated farmhouse), and I replied, "a little." Where do people keep these, because my husband draws the line at having it in our actual living space, and I don't blame him! The other option is in our barn, which is a renovated century bank barn that is fairly weather proof. I am struggling with a Chinese incubator at the moment and it's driving us nuts, beeping all the time, never holds humidity and temp is v unreliable. It's cruel to try to hatch under those conditions. Thank you!
