How does it use its intelligence?
It examines your programmes and the heat
sensors, which provide very accurate temperature information, and it then
decides for itself how to meet your requirements.
- It keeps a detailed history of performance, under
varying operating conditions, which it uses intelligently to calculate Optimum
Start switch-on times. Simultaneous demands for central heating and for water
heating are taken into account.
The Optimum Start feature is
extremely sophisticated. It will start warming up your home to get it to
temperature for the time that you have programmed and, on very cold days, this
can be up to four hours early. It separately optimises both central heating and
hot water heating for all programmes for all days of the week. It does not
simply apply yesterday's experience to today, but gives consistently high
performance, even when the weather changes sharply by several degrees from one
day to the next - see illustration below.
