Night set-back

In well-insulated buildings, night set-back has little effect on the use of energy for heating, as the room temperature falls only marginally overnight.

A continuous operation is usually advantageous for reasons of convenience and because of the positive influence on the self-regulation effect. This is true even for short absences of 2 to 3 days.

In older, less well insulated homes or at relatively high rates of air exchange, using a night set-back results in a lowering of the temperature through the night and thus savings in heating energy. If the heating system does not have a quick-warm-up program, make sure that the heating phase is started sufficiently early relative to the usage of the building. Modern individual room controls for surface heaters often have a self-adapting time control, which automatically compensates for the time lag when the heating is turned up or down.
