Duel-Fuel Home Heating Program
Just like water heaters, a receiver control switches off electricity to the plenum heater in your furnace or your electric boiler during times of high system demand. Mounted near the Duel-Fuel service panel, the load management receiver is installed by ACEC technicians.
Since the load management program monitors electric load on the entire system, the goal is to reduce electric consumption only during peak usage times. Weather is a big factor in load management programs, so your electric heat is not usually controlled every day.
Control periods are only Monday – Friday (excluding holidays). While power to your electric heat is shut off, your second fuel heats your home as needed.
