Its like having a kettle on permanently

IMG_20150327_065426

I wake up this morning at 6am. And so I get out of bed and have a leisurely shower. Today is mufti so there is no need for the shirt and tie as usual.

Some days are nicer than others, well in the morning. Up early and ready to leave the door this morning, not like most. When I started that new way of getting to work, you know the one, the walk, the catching the train, I thought I knew that I would only do it for a short time, the time it took before it got cold and rainy. Today though as I step out of the door into the outside world of humanity and crime, I breath the fresh air from the chase into my lungs and look forward to the walk, and look forward for the warmer lighter mornings that are ahead. Do I miss going to work in the car? Only when it rains. And as I walk down the hill and into the centre, there is a start of a busselling day, the outside street market is setting up and the market stall holders are ready to greet their customers.

And that first customer of course is me.

I walk on to the station.

Once at Walsall I take the time to have closer look at the article I had brought. Yep this will do fine, a second purple duvet cover for when I wash the sheets.

I also get another railcard pass as its that time of the month.

Its a busy day at work as usual, and dinner time comes so quickly. Three of us head to the chip shop, no salad for me today. And then we eat in the office and chat, it is nice, it is friendly. It is nice, it is lovely and all because I had mine covered in chilli sauce.

Back at home I get the duvet cover out and try it on the bed. But what I didn’t notice when I brought it was,

IMG_20150327_191937

Its actually got two designs! Yep now isn’t that neat! And for only a tenner.

For tonight's entertainment I’m going to be an electrician and change the under floor heating controller for the stairs hallway floor, so out of the box

IMG_20150327_065332

Now I wasn’t expecting a new temperature probe to come with it.

IMG_20150327_065342

I flip it over and consider the connections.

IMG_20150327_195548

Then I got to the fuse board and

IMG_20150327_195601

switch UFH hall to off.

IMG_20150327_195656

Then I go to the fused spur point and switch that off.

IMG_20150327_195704

And also remove the fuse in it.

IMG_20150327_195716

I shouldn’t die now.

IMG_20150327_195721

And so off with the odl control unit.

IMG_20150327_195728 

And then remove the back section where

IMG_20150327_195801

the wires all connect.

IMG_20150327_195853

I swop the wires from one to the other.

IMG_20150327_200516

Put the new back board in

IMG_20150327_200536

and mount the control unit.

IMG_20150327_200549

In with the fuse.

IMG_20150327_200617

it takes a good push

IMG_20150327_200631

Then the circuit breaker is powered back up.

IMG_20150327_200652

And on with the switch.

IMG_20150327_200746

And would you know it, it fires up.

 IMG_20150327_210120

I have a read of its settings and then let it warm up. Slowly they floor gets warmer just like the control unit says.

IMG_20150327_204445

And with that I read the manual and how electric under floor heating is simply the best and most efficient way to heat your home. But how can that be, its like having a kettle on permanently?
