Does anybody make a gadget that combines programmable thermostat and AC outlet? I have two applications in mind. #1 I want to control temperature in small room using space heater.
#2 If one has an apartment heated by what (I think) is called gas log - furnace-gas stove combination. The gas is electrically ignited (the thing has AC plug). It has some sort of thermostat, there are no other controls. I want to set temperature accurately and be able to keep the place cold at night and when nobody is home.
Can anybody see anything wrong with "inserting" thermostat-controlled switch between the stove and AC outlet?
Has anybody seen such a gadget? Thanks!
