Central heating will come on at the following times, provided you turn the individual radiators on by the valve:
- 7.00am - 9.00am.
- 12.00pm - 2.00pm.
- 6.00pm - 10.30pm.
Hot water is provided 24/7.
Heating controls (optimum start) -
The heating controls for residences have an early start system called an ‘optimum start’ for the first period in the morning. A controller calculates times the heating needs to come on to pre-heat buildings to normal temperatures.
These calculations use external temperatures to calculate the extra time the heating needs to be on. So on cold days the heating could come on some hours earlier than milder days; the start times given are the latest times the heating will come on.
Heating controls (variable hot water temperatures) -
The hot water going into radiators has its temperature controlled to provide the right heat for the outside conditions; if the outside temperature is low, the radiator will be running at a hotter temperature than if it is warm outside. This is because the heat loss from a room varies with the outside air temperature. Many times during milder days, the radiator circuits can therefore appear lukewarm or even cool and this is due to the compensation system working.
