Continuing the discussion from Temperature experiments:
It's good to see things moving in the right direction.
I'm curious about how zonal the heating and control is in Queens. The measured temperature in my room (Q1.11) is over 23oC and the radiators are still hot. I just heard the pipes complaining, so I think it has just switched off. On Friday, the vents in the roof opened even though the heating had been on, I think. I wonder - is the heating in Q1.05 and 1.11 (the IESD) on the same control governed by the sensors in the concourse (as reported by @carlholland here), or has it got differentiated control?
I'll try to put some Hobos next to the sensors today...

I can see four sensors in the main 1.05 area, with a further one in the store room at the end. 1.11 has one sensor, which I think controls the heating valve near to where Paul C now sits. 1.15 has another sensor in 1.15a. 1.11 does seem to overshoot frequently. It may be possible to reduce the setpoint, or the speed of response, to reduce the effect of this. If you would like to come over and view the BMS Richard (and Greame) please give me a call.

Excellent - when I get a minute I'll take you up on the offer of having a look at the BMS. Spurred on by your reply I located the 1.11 sensor and saw that it actually has a static thermometer sitting next to it that was reading somewhere between 21 and 23oC.
