Title: HEATING CONTROLLER
Abstract:
A heating controller for controlling a hot water system, the system comprising a heat source, a circulation pump, a plurality of hot water usage points and at least a first sensor for indicating usage of a usage point, the heating controller comprising: input means for receiving the signal from at least the first sensor; a memory for storing usage data corresponding to the received signals along with an associated time interval for when the signals are received, and for storing a filter algorithm; a processor adapted to filter the stored usage data according to the filter algorithm to establish and store a usage pattern and, if the usage pattern at a particular time interval reaches a threshold value, to output a signal to activate the circulation pump prior to a subsequent related time interval; and adjustment means adapted to allow varying of a parameter of the filter algorithm, thereby adjusting the balance between energy saving and the immediate provision of hot water at the usage points.
