Heating

 Cosy... Finally. 

The new central heating in the cottage is based on 
Calthermic Montblanc Plus high efficiency electric heaters 
which are controlled by an app.
 We can now control the temperature of each room individually hour by hour. 
It's taken a while but now it can definitely be said that the cottage is old, characterful and cosy. 






                                                         Average comfort setting at 21.5
                                       Please advise if you need any particular timings or boosts
(the average setting is for extra comfort  breakfast, lunch and all evening.)
The log stoves are still in use for extra ambience!
