I've been in Hestia House
since May 2005, so I've spent 2 winters here. It's true that I rarely have to use the heating, but I do have to use a portable air-con machine for 7 months of the year! Galliard hid behind the legislation of the day, regarding insulation etc., stating that the buildings were all 'evermore energy efficient'! Yeah - right.
Never have I needed a heated towel-rail less, in my sauna of a bathroom, where I never close the door.
I totally agree about the movement sensors - I live in the middle of a corridor, between 2 firedoors, with 2 large fixed windows...south-east facing. Even on a cool, but sunny, day temperatures can be in the mid-80s.
White, Druce & Brown [our 'Managing Agents', lol] should be able to provide you with a key to the meter room - but the ironmongers are probably cheaper.
I'll have a word with the guy who runs the website - he's usually extremely good and only recently distributed flyers for the site, over the whole development, for the third time.
On the upside, there are some great people here :-)
