Red Light District?

redlightbulb.jpg   Ever wonder about the red light bulbs in the front window of summer homes?  It’s a popular “high tech” system used by owners who leave their heat and water on in the winter months.  The light bulb is plugged into a wall thermostat.   If the temperature in the house drops below the setting (typically 10 degrees below the real thermostat for the heat), the light goes on.  The police or real estate agent notice the light (the red light stands out) and call the owner and/or service company to check the heat.

ACE Hardware in Stone Harbor sells the kit- and will know what you are talking about if you ask for the “red light thing”!
