Theres a little flurry of activity going on behind out courtyard and it seems a girt big biomass boiler is being installed by the landlord which will serve the 6 houses here.
It'll replace the individual oil fired systems the house have which is fine but...
Theres a bit of vaguery going on with regards to how the heat to our individual houses will be controlled, metered and billed other than 'it'll be cheaper than oil'. Given they don't know how much oil I use I don't know how they can determine that. We use our heating quite sporadically and even though we both work from home we have our heating on less when we're in than our neighbours do when they're out so its a bit of a concern that the 'metering' is going to be more of a 'going dutch' where we end up paying for a portion of each of our neighbours plates of lobster even though we only had the soup.
Anyone got experience of these sorts of larger communal systems?
