TREND Heating System – IMPORTANT reminder regarding heating settings


Now Summer is here and temperatures are increasing, it is essential that you check all of your heating settings are up to date. This includes diary and temperature settings for the school term time.

Calendars (Diary Section) can be set up well in advance of planned holidays and we would encourage Schools to use this feature.

You will be familiar with the Schools local Property Care Engineer who can assist if you are struggling setting these up or it’s been a while since you last did it?

The more notice the better, help us help our Schools.

We have received enquiries recently regarding how to access and use the TREND heating system to review and amend the settings.

Where TREND systems are installed you can log into your system by “copying and pasting” the below http address link into your Internet address bar (not search engine).

(If you have been provided with a different http address from Asset Management & Property Services, please continue to use the one you have been advised of):

Please Note:

If you cannot connect to TREND and have recently changed your Internet provider, you need to ensure that your router is still connected to your TREND system by “Ethernet” cable. Please check all cables are securely connected.

TREND Guidance documents:

Please see attached Basic Operation Guides which explain how to review and adjust TREND heating settings.

Should you require further assistance with any aspect of TREND please do not hesitate to contact your Property Care Engineer.
