MATTERS TO BE CONSIDERED IN THE USE HEAT COST ALLOCATORS

Heat insulation is very important in buildings. It is a fact that thermally insulated apartments save upto 50% from energy cost.

Prevent heat loss from openings on windowsill, avoid unnecessary reduction of room temperature.

Doors, windows and other places that allow air to enter the flat should not be kept open for a long time. HCA devices consumption depend on the room temperature. For example; You have adjusted your valves according to 22 (3) degrees, your radiator started to heat up, but when your room temperature drops by 5-10 degrees abruptly due to an open door or window, your radistor will work for a longer time to heat your room and HCAs will consume accordingly. Your thermostatic valve adjusts the temperature of your room according to the degree you set, and when the room temperature reaches the desired degree, your valves close the heat transfer.

Keep the doors of your heated rooms closed as much as possible to minimize the heat loss between rooms and in the hall.

If you witness any manipulation of your neighbors' HCAs, you should report this to management. Because there is a minimum heating rule of 15 degrees in the regulation. Those who do not comply with this violate others right to warm up.

Do not put wet towels, laundry, curtains, etc. on your radiators. Do not place any objects closer than 30 cm in front of them.

Do not bring down curtains on thermostatic valves. The thermostatic radiator valve measures the temperature of the room from its front surface and turns the heater on or off according to the setting you have made on the valve. Therefore, obstacles such as curtains and seats in front of the valve prevent the valve from measuring the temperature of the room accurately.

The heat from the radiators heats the wall behind the radiator. Place an aluminum foil-coated thermal insulation boards to prevent heat loss through the wall.

Place floor baseboard under your doors and seal all the opening on the windows of your apartment to prevent cool air entry and renew when necessary.

Having the curtains fully closed at night contributes to energy savings. However they should not block the front of the radiator and the thermostatic valve.

NOTES

HCAs are not cost saving devices but are only a measuring device. Cost savings are achieved by keeping the temperature in the house under control by using thermostatic valves.

HCAs record consumption when the radiator is warmer than the room. If there is no heat transfer in the radiator, allocators do not record consumption.

The 2 sensors on the HCA helps measure the heat of the radiator and the room temperature. The temperature difference between them records the consumption as a unit.

According to just these recorded units, Manas shares the total block invoice as common area expenses at 30% and consumption expenses at 70%. The recorded unit is used by multiplying the radiator type with the coefficients that vary according to its size and HCA.

Manas, is authorized with a certificate to perform reading services of HCAs remotely without disturbing you by entering the flat..

The HCA can distinguish the heat from the sun and the heat from the radiator therefore inaccurate data collection is not possible in the summer season.

Every 1 degree decrease in the degree settings of your thermostatic valves provides 6% energy savings.
