Having anything above 22 is ridiculous regardless of age. The problem lies with the home not the thermostat.
As an individual I stood alone.As a member of a group I did things.As part of a community I helped to create change!
Misscleo [email protected]Yadnad…...not a stupid comment at all, in fact very well made points. I have 2 programmable controllers along with radiator thermostats and it really is a "set it and forget it" system. Could there be a problem with for example single glazing, draughts, and generally poor insulation? 25 degrees is a ridiculously high setting and she could be paying good money to heat up the street rather than her house. Has she checked her meter readings to find out exactly how much fuel she's using and at what cost? Lots of questions that should be easily answered by any proficient heating engineer.
My aunts has had a new boiler fitted. It wont go higher than 25.She is 95 and after 6pm her home is getting too cold.Family have phoned the company. They wont answer any of us.Anyone know what we can do to get sorted before the winter comes ?
We cant just get anyone to alter things cos that would invalidate her guarantee.Iv told her to go to cab or a councilor.Shes not ill so i dont tbink she needs heating above 18 in the day and 20 at night.
My aunt instructed the compauy herdelf.The throw sounds a good idea where did your son get it. Do gou think wed get one off amazon?As i keep saying i think 25 is high enough shes been spoit. I put mjne on 25 when i got home.to see how long i could put up it. It was unpleasant and i need heat for the arthritis but 20 was fine.However if we were in jan or feb and there wss snow i may see a need for 24. I noticed some say theirs was stuck on 30 so someine must have thought that was too high.Iv asked her daughter to contact the ombudsman about the company not aswering calls or emails. I think the company should have saud if they were settung all new boilers at 25.She thinks shes the omly 1. Which is why i put her message on.here. now we know some are stuck at 30 and some at 25..Many thanks everyone
