Ujima House has a central heating system, operated and maintained by the landlord. Hot water is pumped from the boiler house located on the roof to the various radiators, most of which are finned tubes in vented enclosures, looped around the edges of the building.
The heating appears to come on intermittently throughout the day. At the time of writing its not clear if its on a schedule, a thermostat elsewhere in the building controlled by the landlord, or if there is a fault. The Hackspace is always warm enough, so its yet to be an issue.
The thermostats are all configured to be 18°C which may be a little conservative - we'll see how it goes.
To be confirmed
In all 4 corners of the first floor there's a basic controller attached to the wall, which controls a solenoid valve. These are paired with a wireless thermostat.
From each corner a heating loop runs along side to the mid-point of the longer wall.
