I want to add a timer to an asp.net page.  After the timer runs out, I want the website to be redirected to another.  How do I do that?  I would want the page to be redirected after about 10 seconds.

Try putting this in the head tag of your ASP.NET page source.  Example redirect after 20 seconds.

<head>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="20;URL=http://test123.com/default.aspx; text/html; charset=us-ascii;">
</head>

protected override void OnStart(string[] args)
        {
             //TODO: Add code here to start your service.
            businessthreadStarter = new Thread(new ThreadStart(this.BusinessFacadeThreadStart));
            businessthreadStarter.Start();

            timer = new System.Timers.Timer();

            timer.Interval = Convert.ToDouble(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["TimerValue"].ToString());

            timer.Elapsed += new ElapsedEventHandler(timer_Elapsed);

            timer.Enabled = true;

            timer.Start();
}

 private void timer_Elapsed(object sender,
              System.Timers.ElapsedEventArgs e)
        {
           Response.redirect("home.aspx");
        }

Have you tried the meta tag?  For 10 seconds.

<head>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="10;URL=http://test123.com/default.aspx; text/html; charset=us-ascii;">
</head>

You need to insert it in your head tag.  In this example it will redirect it in 10 seconds to the default.aspx under test123.com web site.
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="WebApplication1._Default"  %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="10;URL=http://test123.com/default.aspx; text/html; charset=us-ascii;">
</head>
<body>
.............

Oh by the way, bad example in my previous psot, redirecting it to itself, just assume you are redirecting it to let say order.aspx, so it will be
<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="WebApplication1._Default"  %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" >
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" CONTENT="10;URL=http://test123.com/order.aspx; text/html; charset=us-ascii;">
</head>
<body>
