Relay - I think ??
This may be the wrong forum as it is an electrical question associated with HVAC, but here goes anyway.
I need to add an accessory to my HVAC furnace. The electrical panel allows for addition of accessories wired to the panel so that they are enganged when the system is. The problem is that when I look at the specs on the panel, no accessory can draw more than one amp. This accessory draws 1.67 amp (at 110VAC). Can I get appropriate power elsewhere and install an inexpensive relay that accepts the 110v source from the HVAC panel to trip a relay that allows the flow of 110v from another source to power the accessory?
If so what device is recommended and where can I get it?
Thanks in advance
