Heating controls (optimum start):

For the first period of the morning, university residences have an early start system called ‘optimum start’. A controller calculates times in which the heating needs to come on in order to pre-heat building to normal temperatures. The calculations are based on external temperatures. Therefore, on cold days, the heating may come on earlier.

Heating controls (variable hot water temperatures):

The external temperatures control the temperature of water flowing into the radiators – if it’s cold outside, the radiator will be running at a hotter temperature. This is because, rooms heat loss varies with the outside temperature. As a result, radiators may sometimes only feel lukewarm or cold.
