Heating – The house benefits from gas central heating, which is set on a timer to come on automatically at regular periods throughout the day. A thermostat is located on the wall in the downstairs hallway, which can be used to control the temperature. The white circle acts as a dial and is touch sensitive – run your finger along the dial in a clockwise direction to turn the temperature up, and anticlockwise to reduce the temperature. Do please turn the heating down when not required and when the house is not in use.
