Underfloor Heating: What does “unbiased “and“ adjusted” mean?

For the heating season October 2020 to April 2021, after an estate-wide survey, it was agreed that the temperature profiles that determine when the underfloor heating is turned on be adjusted, so that we get about 20 hours of additional heat in each of April and October and about 20 hours less heat in each of January and February. This is a trial for one heating season, and it’s underway right now.

  • Unbiased is the number of minutes of heating, which we would have got without the trial.
  • Adjusted is the number of minutes of heating, which we get during the trial.

In March the heating is not affected by the trial so the numbers are the same.
