I have another question concerning my heating system..
In an addition on my house, (Built in '79) there is electric baseboard
heat. Singer series 9715 (installed sept, '79) with a Singer Low Voltage
Thermostat 5258. (1.5amp 30 volt AC max)
I would like to replace this thermostat, but it is a 30 VAC Max, and does
not work with the traditional line voltage thermostatas on the market. I
tried a Honeywell RLV430a, and had to return it to lowes as the unit would
not power when hooked up. the help line at honey well said I need a low
voltage thermostat. I cant find one for a single pole, line voltage
system. or atleast a programmable one.
The wires coming out of the wall are a white and brown ( that were hooked
up to the original thermostat) and a bunch of others just folded over,
many colors, about 8 total. alittle confused about that.
and ideas on a digital programmable stat for this setup? most of the ones
out there are 120/240 volts.. or the extra wires? kinda new to this
homeowner thing, but am trying to learn as I go.. It seems there is low
volt thermos but not for electric baseboards.. i dont know..
thanks for some help..
