Iíve got electric radiators with on/off switches at the wall. On top the radiators have a Ďtemperatureí control which from using them controls the strength of the heat produced. Thereís no sensor in the radiator to detect ambient heat. On the wall is a control panel which Iíve managed to set the time of. The previous occupant has programmed a cycle for individual weekdays and weekends so I let it run on this. The control switch and radiators donít seem to talk as the radiators are just controlled by the switches on the wall and slider on top. As the control switch went through the times when the hearing was meant to be on and off, radiators switched on at the wall remained on, contrary to settings, and radiators switched off at the wall remained off when meant to be on. Any ideas how itís meant to work? Maybe Iím missing something on the controls but I canít find instructions for it anywhere.

They don't look like it, but they could be storage heaters. I used to have storage in my old flat. They never produce heat on demand, per se, they heat up over night on economy 10 and then release heat steadily throughout the day, or if required, can be opened up to release more. Possibly wrong though.

Edit: Looking again they look nothing like storage heaters, so ignore me.

I refuse to touch the scheduling on our heating. It makes me too angry.

If i'm cold, i'll turn it on...simple.

I'm fine with that approach now, in May, but come January I'd like to be able to have some control over it in the mornings and evenings.

Your fourth pic says the programmer is a Dimplex, so Iím wondering if your heating panel is one of these (the thermostat image looks similar to your pic):

The programmer could be one of these:

... or I could be completely wrong.
