Description of P3 International P0270 Mold Alert Digital Thermometer/Hygrometer
The P3 International P0270 Mold Alert Thermometer/Hygrometer will display accurate and constant indoor air temperature and humidity throughout your home. This compact unit also has a dew-point readout which will indicate the comfort level and the likelihood of moisture to occur on the surfaces in your home. Its unique feature is the Mold Alert function which is an audible/visible alarm that will sound when the humidity level reaches 65% and will remain until it is lowered.

How it Works:
The temperature can be displayed either in Fahrenheit or Celsius by adjusting the °C/°F switch on the back of the unit. The audio alarm can be activated using the "Al On/Al Off" switch on the back of the unit.
Product Usage: Suggestions for placement of the unit:
There is an opening on the back of the unit, which allows it to be easily hung from the wall. In addition, a base is provided for the unit to be placed on any surface in a standing position.
Since the humidity level within rooms can vary greatly, the Mold Alert should be placed in an area most likely subject to mold growth. Problem areas are often basements, closets, surfaces near windows and exterior walls. Anywhere in a home that is damp or has suffered from water damage is also a prime location for mold growth.
