I’ve had a long chat with Aaron from Homely Technical Support this afternoon; he has explained a little more about the logic of Homely control. Though I had set a setback temperature overnight, this is not seen as an ‘Off if warmer than this temperature’ command but more a case of ‘I’ll just footle along so that when you require the normal temperature in the morning, I’ll be there and will have achieved it at the lowest cost’! We had a chat about new features including one I think is fairly new and that is ‘Cool Night Mode’ and I have now toggled this ‘on’ and having removed the setback times from my schedule, Homely will just keep an eye on temperature but not start up in the night unless the temperature drops below 12 degrees C.

Homely have also introduced several new values on the temperature tolerance range,; it is now possible to select a maximum of 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 or 0 degrees of tolerance. 

I was also told work is in hand to provide more info on various screens explaining the logic behind what Homely control is doing at that particular time and why. They will also be improving the scheduling menu and I have requested some accessibility improvements which are being sent to the app design people. There are also various ‘extras’ being incorporated for release later in the year. Altogether, a very positive chat! Regards, Toodles.

Toodles, 76 years young and hoping to see 100 and make some ROI on my renewable energy investment!

You might find some useful information on Michael de Podesta's blog. For instance, this post shows the distribution of levels of heat demand over an average year. https://protonsforbreakfast.wordpress.com/2023/12/17/variability-of-heating-demand-throughout-a-year/

There are also posts showing how COP varies for his ASHP. https://protonsforbreakfast.wordpress.com/2023/11/01/heat-pumps-cop-envy-is-pointless/
