Hi all, I am hoping you can help!
My girlfriend and I moved into a flat 2 months ago and it has ceiling heating. We are having some real issues with it… We switch it on and it doesn’t even warm up the flat (bear in mind we had it on for an entire week and no change). Naturally we have mentioned this to the letting agent who have informed us to keep it on because ceiling heating is an old technology and can take a while to warm up (again, we had it on for a week). Upon complaining more, they have said the landlady will supply us free of charge an oil filled radiator to “heat the flat up during the winter months”.
Now, surely this is unacceptable. I am fortunate enough to work from home and during the day I am freezing and have to wear about 15 layers to keep warm. On top of this, the use of heating, as well as the said radiator is surely going to send our energy bills through the roof?!
Has anyone got any advice here because as it is getting colder and colder, this is going to be more and more of an issue. Can I demand they replace the heating?! Or pay money towards our bills?!
We are waking up in the moing with all windows covered in condensation and have to wipe them every moing!
Help would be much appreciated!
