What effect would occur if the temperature sensor wire was not 20 feet in length and #14AWG wire was used? The sensor was wired in using about 4 feet of #14AWG instead of 20 feet of 16AWG.

Wire size and length are not very important, but the longer the distance the the more susceptible to electrical noise. Twisted pair should be used for any length greater than 6 feet.
