Turned it on briefly last night as it was 12C, what a yucky day. Happy with the heavy rain (from time to time) but does it have to be so cold with it?

Had the open fire lit the last few evenings. May have to fire the Argor up tomorrow night as it looks to be a bit nippy.

Heating went on yesterday - I tried to hold off.. but the consistent dampness is taking real effect, very limited sunshine last couple of weeks.

When you put your heating on will depend on so many factors, age of property, whether it is a flat, ground floor, upper floor, detached, terraced, level of time it is occupied, level of insulation, aspect, size of rooms, height, personal decision (cost etc).

My flat is part of a mostly unoccupied very large victorian detached house, its ground/first floor and exposed to the westerly gales being west facing with a west/north aspect, benefiting to some degree from sunshine in afternoon/evening, but the power of the sun diminishes rapidly now.

Not yet. Not cold enough. New double glazing, fitted in last couple of years and insulation should keep us warm(ish) until 1st week of November (at least), unless weather suddenly turns cold.

On and off but only in the last few days. Not sure I'll need tonight but I may tomorrow morning to take the chill off.

Nope :good:

Although to be fair, I've been up in the NW for last couple of months and long sleeves had crept out again. Returned down to the SE on Thursday night and it's still warm with dead grass down here! Even though cooler today I'm still in short sleeves with windows open at 9.30pm :laugh:

Yes, been using the heating since around 20th of September. As soon as the mornings and evenings starting becoming chilly, the heating goes on for an hour or so. 

We will probably start using the heating more often as we move through October.

Yes, this house keeps in heat like mad in the summer, but loses it so much when it's cold. Poor insulation.

I won't put the heating on till the first air frost/ground frost or dense fog.  I am getting thermal curtains and along with the blinds when it is sunny will hopefully keep the house warm as it is very difficult to keep warm.

Went on for the first time this morning, after I got in from work.

Got the chimney swept on Thursday and it seems we will need to have a fire tonight as the house temperature is around 16c from last nights air frost despite sunshine shining through the south facing windows.

Will only need it this evening by the looks of it as next week is looking mild.

Same with our flat. Old Victorian building, so we bake when it’s 27 plus outside, then we start to freeze once the temps outside drop below 17.

Not yet, and probably won't until it falls to around freezing during the evening. Flat is so well insulated we can keep it warm just by cooking dinner!

We've even still got the windows open most of the time at the moment.

Yes, a couple of weeks ago. Old croft house, draughty, but does have decent double glazing and we insulated the upstairs rooms over the last couple of years. They are the warmest rooms in the house! If Fridays weather turns out as predicted we'll need the open fire on, there's a storm a brewing and the power may go off. It doesn't look like it'll be too cold though, so it ain't all bad!

Heatings been on for over a month, the joys of the metal framed house! Too warm upstairs and too cold downstairs

yes. although the house stays at 22c, that now feels chilly due to our wonderful hot summer😶 and the fact we like some fresh air in. Only on for an hour or so at 7am so house toasty to get ready in, then it's off until the morning.
