Question about Vornado TouchStone Vortex Heat 500 Heater
I have an old gas heater that I manually turn on/off and up/down in temperature. It's very energy inefficient. I am either freezing or too hot.
Is there a way for me to install a programmable thermostat to a heater this old? It has a metal knob at the bottom behind a metal grate that I turn from 1-10. How do I hook it up?
If it is a wall furnace with a built-in thermostat(sounds like the 1 to 10 dial is the thermostat) into the control then you would need to buy an updated gas contol valve that will hook up to an external thermostat and a programmable thermostat. The old gas contol valve would need to be removed and the new one installed. Then the thermostat wires would connect to the gas control valve millivolt system. A heating company can perform this service for you and I highly recommend you have it professionaly installed if you are not experienced on this process. You could leave a gas leak or other hazardous situation if not installed correctly.
