College Heating:

  • Now that we have designed and implemented some changes to the new system to increase the temperatures in our buildings you may note that rooms can become over-heated, if this happens please feel free to adjust the thermostatic radiator valve (video guide here) to bring the levels back to a comfortable point.
  • Project consultants and engineers are continuing their works on refining the system over the coming weeks when we are expecting another short cold spell; residents will hear more on this in due course if it affects them.
  • If any of you do experience temperatures in your rooms that are lower than expected then please complete an online Maintenance request and the team will attend as soon as they can.
  • There are a few tips that we would encourage residents to try prior to adjusting the radiator valve in their room:
  • Add some extra layers of clothing
  • Ensure that radiators are free from obstructions
  • Close doors
  • Close windows
  • If fresh air is required in your room use the trickle vents on the window frames (see video guide https://youtu.be/rijd-iXJZ48)
