Maintaining temperatures between 18-24°C should ensure a warm, comfortable home.
The average recommended temperatures for heating your home in Scotland are:
- Main living area 21-22°C (24c for those more vulnerable to cold)
- Hallways, bedrooms and bathrooms 18°C
- Minimum ‘fall-back’ temperature 16°C (the lowest temperature you should set heating to)
UNDERSTANDING YOUR CONTROLS
Your programmer is the Honeywell Home T3 Thermostat.
This is a thermostatic programmer, which means your heating will automatically switch off when your set temperature is reached. It will then switch off and on automatically to maintain your set temperature.
There are three device settings, Manual, Auto and Off, and you choose between these settings on the digital display. For manufacturers guidance please see product information guidance on the manufacturer’s website, which can be accessed at the following location http://hwll.co/T3_pdfs
The programmer is preinstalled with the following ‘Auto’ settings, which you can change to suit your lifestyle.
In this example your heating will:
- Bring the temp in your home to 21°c at 6.30am and will maintain this temp until the next period
- Switch off at 8.00am, and will stay off until next period, unless the temp in your home drops below 16°c
- Will switch on to bring the temp in your home up to 21°c at 6.00pm, maintaining this temp until next period
- Switch off at 10.30pm, and will stay off until next period unless temp in your home drops below 16°c
In operation the standard display on the programmer will show the time, the current temperature in the room where the programmer is installed (hallway), and whether the heating is currently on (denoted by a flame next to the temperature).
The + and – buttons to the side of the digital display can be used to turn the heating up or down at any time.
More buttons can be accessed by lifting the front cover.
Push any of the 3 buttons below the screen and this will change the display to show the current heating control settings.
From here as well as the current room temp, you can see the set target temperature for the current time period (you can set temp for 4 time periods in each 24 hour period), and whether the system is on timer (auto) or manual. It will also show the on/off button and the menu button.
SETTING THE PROGRAMMER
Programmer settings and timings can be adjusted by selecting ‘Menu’, using the using the left hand button at the base of the controller.
After selecting menu, the display will change, and the Programme symbol and the word PROG will flash.
To select this option, push the button on right below the tick.
This display will change to show MOFR, which is settings for weekdays, select by pushing tick button, or skip to weekend setting (SASU) by pushing plus button (on this screen you can toggle between weekday and weekend settings by pushing the + and – buttons)
To select weekdays, push the tick while MOFR is flashing. The display will change to show the current setting for the first of the four time Periods P1 (denoted by P1 flashing on screen)
To amend the time or temperature for this period, select by pushing the tick button.
First the time will flash, to adjust use the + or – button, then press tick to confirm and move to next screen.
The temperature programmer also allows you to override the current temperature setting to meet your needs. You do not need to lift the flap to do this.
