New furnace burner and wireless, programmable thermostat
About the end of last-year’s heating season, we were warned that our furnace burner was on its last legs, and we would likely have to replace the entire furnace. Scary stuff! We were very lucky to have a new member join us, who was able to do a building survey, and to locate and install a new, more efficient burner in the existing furnace. Bill Chidsey has about 40 years of HVAC experience, and has a special interest in increasing energy efficiency. Between the more efficient burner, and the programmable thermostat, we are already saving money on fuel oil–so much so that I got a phone call from our heating oil supplier, asking me to check if our burner was working, since we were using so little oil!
