How does the heating work

Now that it's getting colder again, and the heating has not been used for a while, it might take a while for the heater to turn up to its full potential. This is because the CV is also temperature dependant, the colder it gets outside, the more the CV will start to work. Additionally, if you hear a noise in your heater, almost like a ticking noise, this is air, because it hasn't been used in a while. It takes about 30 seconds to let the air out, in case you don't know how to do it, you can watch a youtube video. You will also need this device, which costs around 1 or 2 euro's.

 

You adjust the temperature in your room using the grey thermostat dial on the side of the heater. The minimum setting (= frost setting) is indicated by a snowflake symbol (*).

 

The maximum temperature is indicated by the number 5. Normal room temperature is around 21 degrees Celsius. The most comfortable temperature is achieved when the thermostat dial is between 2 and 4. At night, we recommend setting the thermostat dial on mode * or 1.

Note: when leaving your room for a short time (e.g. work day), leave the heating knob at mode 2 or 3. If you are leaving your room for a longer period (e.g. holiday), turn the knob to minimum *. This will keep the water moving and prevent it from freezing in the pipes. Your room will no longer be heated, of course. 

 

Please keep the environment in mind, so turn the heater down when you’re not in. Naturally, this will also keep the costs down.
