    Not the best thing to keep turning it on and off.
    why off when i go to bed? it seems to work throughout the night flawlessly. I could just turn it off in the morning before it warms up outside.....right?
    This is just until i get a tech out here. Anyone know of a good one in Efland, NC?

    Sounds like a simple control problem. Somewhere in your system some control is calling for auxilliary heat. It'll cost you a lot less to get someone out pronto to fix this issue then it will for you to keep paying the cost of those heaters operating.

    If you want to risk it, thats up to you.
    I only advise what the safe thing to do is. if it kicks teh heat on in the middle of the night. You'll just wake up to a very hot house. And a big electric bill.

    Since sr.tech won't come to your aide, you're gonna be hard pressed to find another perfect tech. There are however quite a few good ones in NC that are members of this site.

    lol you guys are funny. I'll be opening the phone book, since there is no way of searching the members list for ppl in NC. I'm certainly not spending my nite clicking on everyones profile until I find one in NC. Anyway, thanks again!!! It's late.....Mother will be at the airport at 8 am....must sleep now, call tech in morning.
