Update:Attic Heat Recovery system automated

Attic Heat Recovery - cooper tubingThanks to Tim Work, a friend and NASA electrician, I no longer have to monitor the attic’s temperature – and turn the Attic Heat Recovery system’s circulation pump on and off throughout the day.  Tim assembled a control panel to automate the system for me.

A thermal wire runs from the attic to  the garage, where the system’s circulation pump and control panel are located.  The thermal wire senses and provide the controller with the attic’s temperature.  The controller then turns the circulation pump on and off according to the temperature selected.

Thank you Tim Work!
