Dear Rachel Notley
Dear Rachel Notley….what a waste of taxpayers money. My 92 year old mother had one of the government paid, eco thermostats put into her house 2 weeks ago and after a very stressful 2 weeks with the furnace not cutting in or not turning off, had it removed tonight and her old one put back in.
Even the technician that was contracted by the Alberta Government to install these said there are huge issues and they don’t work properly with older furnaces. If you have a 3 wire connection they work okay….2 wire connection and there are problems. This wasn’t discussed at all during installation, or even after numerous calls to “tech support”.
$250.00 each for these units, and people are removing them and selling them on the buy & sells……taxpayers money hard at work!!
In the mean time, my mother was sitting in her chair covered in blankets because the furnace was not kicking in…..or almost in tears because it wouldn’t shut off and it was ridiculously hot in the house. You will be receiving a letter in the next couple of days expressing my disgust with this absolute waste of money!!
