Hot Water and Central Heating
The gas boilers in our properties have two circuits - one for Central Heating and the other for Hot Water - and they work independently as follows...
The central heating circuit of the boiler is controlled over the internet by us and locally by you. We set general profiles according to the four seasons:
In the summer months the central heating will be turned off and in the winter months it will be turned on
In Spring and Autumn it will be turned on but for a shorter period and at an intermediate temperature
During Winter, Spring and Autumn we set time ranges during which the heating will be on (referred to as “Profile”).
A typical Winter profile might be:
Weekdays 6am to 9am and 5.30pm to 10.30pm
Weekends 7.30am to 11.30am and 5.00pm to 11.00pm
If you feel cold outside these times you can turn on the heating for an hour at a time using the ‘Boost’ function. Press and hold the CH button for three seconds to turn on the heating.
Once the heating is on, hot water will be supplied to each radiator.
You can adjust the temperature of each individual radiator – either in your bedrooms or in the common parts by adjusting the thermostatic valve on one side of the radiator – from off (denoted by a zero or *) to maximum (5 or max).
2. Hot Water
The Hot Water circuit of the boiler provides continuous hot water on demand.
There is no timer control for hot water. It is ‘ON’ all the time.
[The HW button on the controller has been by-passed and is not used by the system.]
