Home Forums General Discussion Heating Re: Re: Heating


This is very timely, as I just received an awful electric bill.

I am with EOn, not through choice, and they told me my flat is NOT on Economy 9, nor has it been for a long time. They have just switched me to Economy 7, which only provides cheap rates between midnight and 7am (although they actually recommended I may want to switch to EDF!).

My question is about my boiler and storage heaters – there are no timers on them, although the boiler has a switch marked 'OP' (off peak). Is there a main timer in the building that sets when the heaters / boilers come on? May seem a silly question, but I have no idea otherwise why my heat comes on at some time of the day and not others…
