Recommendations for temp control units?

Does anybody have any recommendations for a good starter for temp control on a 5 gal fermenter? I live in the Mohave and it’s regularly getting to 110 degrees or higher and I need a way to keep my fermenter waaaay cooler (68-72) degrees for a mead recipe I want to try out. My cap for spending is $200. Thanks in advance for the help all!

Look for 5cf chest freezer and inkbird controller. Can easily fall under $200.

If your home is kept under 100 there are many forms of Kviek yeast that will survive and ferment cleanly up to 98F. You will still want to follow best mead practices with nutrients making a starter to insure a best beginning under such temperatures.
