Connexus Energy will be conducting dual fuel equipment tests on Thursday, October 18, and Saturday, October 20, from 6 to 9 p.m.
How to test your system
Set your thermostat to “heat.” Before 6 p.m., on either of the test
dates, turn the temperature up high enough for the system to turn on.
Your electric heat will shut off and your back-up system should begin operating.
If you experience any problems, please contact your own heating or electric contractor.
An electric heating system is used as the primary heat source, supplemented during peak demand periods with an alternate heat source*.
During peak electrical demand periods, the heat source automatically switches from the primary electric heating system to the alternate heat source. The alternate heat source is used up to 12 hours per control time on the coldest days of the year, and will not exceed 400 hours per heating season.
Qualifying Primary Heat Sources:
Qualifying Alternate Heat Sources:
*Portable heaters and wood burning stoves DO NOT qualify as alternate heat sources.
