Ours went on for an hour this morning as the house dropped to 17.5C. Its pretty unusual to have it on this early as its a warm house but three days of maxes below 15C and high winds have sucked the heat out.

 

Aside from cost perhaps, I cant understand the mentality of 'it won't be going on until such date'. If its cold enough then it goes on in our house.

Finally tapped out last night while watching football and wife and kids were in bed.

Would have put the fire normally but we got rid of it earlier this year to make way for a new tv Posted Image

 

But it soon warmed up and was off in less than a hour.

 

Lets see if I can resist tonight Posted Image

Probably would've turned the heating on, but our boiler was condemed last Monday so am waiting for the new one to be installed......thankfully we have a log burner to keep the 'chill' off.....

It's 13c in my bedroom, heating is now on and will stay on unless we get an Indian Summer. I live in hope. If I don't have the heating on now the house gets really damp and chilled ( old house, no insulation ), so I don't grudge the heating oil one bit.

Having a very primitive system only controlled by radiator thermostats, the act of 'turning on our heating' isn't quite possible as such (although we can of course turn it up).  Upgrading to anything more modern would require some serious work since the installers (about 30 years ago) kindly put the junction where the hot water cylinder is connected to the system in a perfectly accessible place...under the floor below the hot water cylinder Posted Image.

 

We usually set the radiator thermostats to about 16 deg C in summer and 20 in winter, and haven't turned them up yet.  We've just started to notice our radiators getting warm occasionally in the early morning.

A real chilly start in our house this morning - got up to 16.6c in the living room. I can cope with that for the short bed to shower to out the door but for sure the fire will be going on when I get in - perhaps even the central heating as the fire will take forever to heat it up from such a low value.

 

And no I don't agree with "I wait till October the 14th for my heating" blah blah... it all goes on & off when its cold!
