Need a meter for hours heating was on
Living in a block of 8 flats, we all tap on central petrol heating. We get charged by the hours we have heating on.
In the daily room graph (have only one thermostat) there is no indication of the time heating was actually on, from start of month / from start of day till present. Is something so obviously necessary somewhere I haven't spotted? How can I control what I am charged otherwise?
The three lines:
What further complicates things is the 1-3 lines setting. I have a plain on off status. Nothing variable / nothing digital. Somewhere else in this forum, I found that this one line means 33% of the time the heating is on. Ok, so how much time was it on eventually?
If the above is valid, I am not even sure if it is financially sound. When I need 3 minutes to get hot water running in radiators, small increments may be less efficient. Any views on that?
