Re: Not Tight

We don't live in a modern house so haven't updated heating system. It works well enough for us. We're well hard!

This is not a financially motived (or Green) decision, its just a habit, but must be saving a few quid, and indirectly helping the planet.

Try it it yourselves.
I prefer comfort from the moment I leave my bed to start my day off with a prebreakfast shower. Our heating goes to night setback at 10pm so that it has started to cool off by around midnight bedtime. The switch to full heating mode is taken care of by optimum start control and very efficient it is too. I could explain how it works, but that link should give you an idea of it's control :thumbup:
