Print out this handy card to help estimate a heating element's coil temperature based on color. The temperature shown is for the temperature of the coil actual. It is not the temperature of the air. Those will most likely be two different things. Would you like a printed card mailed to you? Click here and request one!
Due to the differences among printers the picture you print may not reflect the actual color of our reference card. The same logic holds true for computer screens. The cards we have in our offices and trade booths are consistent in color and have been printed by the same printer since the 70s'. We'll be happy to send you one.
