Right (it's like the blind leading the blind here!) I 'THINK' that is how hot the water gets heated...If you find it is way to hot coming out the tap you turn it down and if not warm enough = up?...Err maybe!

there must be a way to tap off the energy used for scrapping ...

We have controls on our radiators to turn them on or off or adjust them.

We also have a wall thermostat to switch the overall heating on or off.

We have a boiler switch to heat water and independently heat the rads.

BUT in my old house you could only adjust rads on or off and turn heating PLUS water on together.
