    Default Graph of gas consumption showing Evohome in action

    There is nothing better than a picture of gas consumption to show EvoHome in action with a 24kW boiler, 18 actuators in 12 zones in a two storey house with a large hall.

    The graph is updated every 15 minutes.

    o The 6kW peak is heating the house from cold in the morning equating to 24kW/hr
    o The 0.25 peaks are due to heating the water tank after several showers. The water comes on at 06:30 before the radiators.
    o The 0.03ish peaks is EvoHome keeping the house up to temperature with low radiator temperatures.
    o Gas usage drops to zero at 17:00 because we lit a log stove and turned downstairs zones off.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your post. I'm in the process of getting quotes for fitting Evohome with 9 valves. How did you obtain the graph? Is there some reporting provided through Evohome?

    No, it created using the gas monitor supplied by a Danish company called NorthQ.

    Here's mine too, interesting to see the difference.

    This is for heating a 4 bedroom 3 floor townhouse built in 2006, S-plan setup with an 18Kw Ideal Logic boiler, and Megaflo unvented cylinder. 12 zones, 14 radiators in total, all controlled.

    Paul - what temperature do you have it set to over night?

    Conservatory currently 15c overnight, but will be lowering this to 10c (insulated solid roof conversion so heatloss isn't as bad). Other rooms mostly 15c/16c, except the nursery & kids rooms which are set to 20c as they pick up colds like crazy!

    The house is also only heated via central heating, we have no separate lounge fire or anything like that.
